Installing a Dual-Boot with Windows and Ubuntu

Just because… you know… this could come in handy one day.

One day, Linux will do games well… and on that day, I will end my Microsoft addiction. Until then, Civ IV plays well on Windows (but hey, I can quit anytime… honest).

Are you new to Ubuntu and DBaaS?

Ubuntu is essentially a complete Linux data management operating system, made freely available with both community and professional support. The software is available free of charge and it is also possible to customize and alter this software in whatever way you see fit.

Ubuntu is shipped in stable and regular release cycles and a new release is shipped every six months. Every two even years an Ubuntu long term support (LTS) release becomes available, and that is then supported for 5 years. The Ubuntu releases in between (known as development or non-LTS releases) are supported for 9 months each.

It is also important to note that Hyper-V can be used to run Ubuntu on Windows.

Hypervisor technology is software on which multiple virtual machines can run, with the hypervisor layer controlling the hardware and allocating resources to each VM operating system.

As server virtualization becomes more important to businesses as a cost-saving and security solution, and as Hyper-V becomes a major player in the virtualization space, it is important for IT professionals to understand how the technology works and what they can and cannot do with it.

Consequently, if you would like to learn more about the relationship between Ubuntu and Hyper-V, you might find this ubuntu hyper-v guide from Couchbase useful.
