(Almost) Seamless Linux on Windows with Virtual Machine
Tired with slow Drush on Windows? Want to have a development environment that mimic the hosting environment, but still stuck with Windows? Or, just want to have fun with multiple Linux flavor? Virtual machines come to rescue.
About this session
I will present how to use VMware Player (gratis!) for Linux and Drupal installation. Some of the topics I will discuss include: VMware player (or Workstation trial) installation tips, Unity (makes Linux applications looks like run seamlessly with your Windows) & full screen mode, virtual hosts configuration, using Drush to install Drupal and perform simple maintenance, etc.
