Installing Ubuntu 14.04 in VirtualBox
VirtualBox is a free and opensource software application that can be used to create virtual machines on a desktop. The software can be downloaded from <a title=”VirtualBox” href=”http://virtualbox.org”>VirtualBox.org</a>. If you plan on running virtual machines from a desktop computer this software works great.
The Ubuntu operating system can be downloaded from the <a title=”Ubuntu” href=”http://ubuntu.com”>Ubuntu.com</a> website. The download file will be an .iso file that is an entire disk image. Rather than burning it to a disk, virtual machines can use the .iso file directly.
The installation takes about 25 minutes to setup.
