Linux virtual machine environment


As with all software, please ensure that your usage falls within the licensing terms. For instance, some software may not be licensed for use on TTU-owned devices.

A virtual machine environment is software that emulates a computer's hardware to allow multiple operating systems to run simultaneous on one computer.


Several commercial and free versions of this type of software are available from companies such as Parallels, Oracle (VirtualBox), Microsoft, and others. The most likely scenario for someone wanting to use VM software is someone running Windows that needs to run a Linux-based program.


Using virtual machine environment software from companies like Parallels, Oracle, Microsoft, or others will allow Linux to be run in a Windows environment.
