    Hello everyone,

    I just installed Ubuntu on my old PC. It felt really good to finally wipe away all things Microsoft off my machine, but I must admit I am very impressed by how easy it was to install on my PC. All on it's own, it configured all the drivers, downloads, etc. Literally after clicking a few buttons, I now have the functionality of an OS, plus an Office suite, graphics, photo, music, etc.

    I want to see how well this runs on my macbook pro. What is the best way to do this? Is there an easier way to do this other than by partitioning the hard disk?

    Personally I use VMware Fusion to host various x86 Operation systems such as:
    • Windows 2000
    • Windows XP
    • Windows 2003 Server
    • Ubuntu

    I will be adding:
    • Windows 98SE
    • Windows 7
    • DOS

    You are only limited by your available HD space. Plus you can store your VMware images on an external HD.

    you should also consider running it in a virtual machine. try VirtualBox from Sun Microsystems. its free and it can run beryl and compiz fusion now.
