Virtualization is the process creating a virtual version of a resource such
as an operating system, network resource or storage device. Virtualization of
an OS involves hosting an OS on another OS using a virtualizer such as Oracle
VirtualBox. Various Linux distributions such as openSUSE, Ubuntu, and Fedora
are available. In this article we'll discuss hosting openSUSE, Ubuntu, and
Fedora on Oracle VirtualBox running on Windows OS.
