Here's goes my question :  Roll Eyes

can I run windows application in linux ( *cough* not wine *cough* )

I mean to run windows in some kind of console or something like this !

I mean if i need to run windows app I could restart my computer and from the dual-boot option to choose windows ! but it's a little waste of time !

by the way now I'm used to the great speed of linux Cheesy

VirtualBox - It's free (not exactly as in speech, but close enough for me to use it)

I get an error about not having enough free space

Quote
An error has occurred during virtual machine execution! The error details are shown below. You can try to correct the described error and resume the virtual machine execution.
Host system reported disk full. VM execution is suspended. You can resume after freeing some space.

Error ID:
DevATA_DISKFULL
Severity:
Non-Fatal Error


Where can I delete some files to continue za windowz installation ?  Huh?

PS : Also i see that linux doesn't show me the correct free space on some partition !
i forgot that i've downloaded tons of linux isos  D'oh!

Thanks in advance Wink

parallels workstation is the best choice for virtualization of windows inside of linux.. IMO

ive installed windows virtuals on vmware player, virtualbox and parallels under linux and parallels seemed to be the smoothest... virtualbox worked but was clunky..

the nice thing is that parallels images will transfer painlessly to other platforms
running parallels(FTW)

thanks jammaster for your suggestion Wink

right now i'm thinking how to extend my linux partition .... moving free space from windowz partition to my linux partition ( or I'm thinking to buy an external 500 gb hdd ) !

I'm begining to love linux .... but I got a long road head ... but I don't bitch about it  Nerd

For virtual box, make sure you install the guest additions - really makes a massive difference!

http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/virtualbox-guest-addons.html

also, I found the OSE version to be a bit sh*t

better to use the free but not open source version which seems a lot more stable, just download it directly from the virtual box site
