Filed under: Random Rants — jigarme @ 6:49 pm

As I might have mentioned in my other posts as well, that I use Virtual Machines a lot!!

I love snapshot feature in Virtual Machine softwares, like Microsoft Hyper-V and VMWare Workstation! My repository goes something like this,

  • Windows XP 32 bit – Base OS (with SP2)
    • Windows XP 32 bit – Visual Studio 2003
    • Windows XP 32 bit – Visual Studio 2005
    • Windows XP 32 bit – Visual Studio 2008
  • Windows 2003 Server – Base OS
    • Windows 2003 Server – Base OS (with SP2)
  • Windows Vista 32 bit – Base OS (with SP1)
    • Windows Vista 32 bit – Visual Studio 2005
    • Windows Vista 32 bit – Visual Studio 2008
  • Windows XP 64 bit – Base OS (with SP2)
    • Windows XP 64 bit – Visual Studio 2005
    • Windows XP 64 bit – Visual Studio 2008
  • Windows Vista 64 bit – Base OS (with SP1)
    • Windows Vista 64 bit – Visual Studio 2008

This entire virtual machine jungle eats up almost 80 GB of my hard drive, but I think its worth it!

Because of various environment I have to work with on every single day, Virtual Machines is the only thing that can help me. Sometimes, I wonder if there would be no Virtualization technology, how would I work!

Stay tuned.. Wave
