Virtualization. What is virtualization? Virtualization is the process of running a different Operating System(OS) on your computer while still having the ability to use the original OS. Say, you have a Mac and you need to run a Windows program that you love but you don’t have a PC or don’t want to buy one. You can use virtualization software to run Windows and use your favorite program.

There are many ways to virtualize depending on weather you have a Mac, Windows or a Linux based computer. Some ways you won’t need to buy software, sometimes you will. They all come with their pros and cons depending on what you want.

Be on the lookout for newer posts with more details on virtualization.
