Missing Ubuntu, I decided to try to make it work on my Windows 7 box. Installing Sun’s VirtualBox, http://www.virtualbox.org/, I am able to get an Ubuntu 10.04 Server working on my system.
Being needy, I also need some basic GUI tools for my Ubuntu 10.04 Server. Fortunately, Ubuntu provides documentation for those requiring additional software, but are unsure what to install at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ServerGUI
If this is a production server, I will stick with the command line interface (CLI). Fortunately, my box is not a production server. Therefore, some GUI additions will not hurt.
- Vim or gEdit for the weak of heart
Do you really need Firefox if Ubuntu 10.04 Server is running inside a virtual machine inside Windows?
