TOPIC: VirtualBox: Way Better Than Dual-Boot
Virtualization is a key cutting-edge technology to run multiple operating systems on on one machine, provide bug and security isolation,
provision or migrate systems easily, free systems from driver problems, and more. Our speaker will demonstrate VirtualBox, a free-of-charge, very polished,
novice-friendly virtualization package now sponsored by Oracle. It's even (almost fully) open source.
ABOUT THE PRESENTER:
Frank Turner is retired from positions in paint chemistry, chemical sales, engineering sales, and real estate.
With the preceding experience, it was an obvious career choice to take on computer programming in general and
Web page development in particular. He has used Linux distributions since the demise of his beloved Amiga computer,
and is currently running Ubuntu 15.04 on a Mac Pro. (That's the old 42 lb "cheesegrater" Mac Pro.) He is a proud supporter of the open source ethic.
