    How to Install ESX 4.0 on Workstation 6.5.2 as a VM Title
    1.0 Introduction
    Being able to run VMware ESX 4.0 under VMware
    Workstation as a VM gives users and professionals
    in the IT community great flexibility when it comes
    to learning, experimenting or even demonstrating
    the product. Needless to say, this is not an officially
    supported deployment.
    The approach is fundamentally no different to that
    previously devised for VMware ESX 3.5, the main
    difference simply being the change in minimum
    hardware requirements.
    2.0 Pre-Requisites
    The minimum hardware requirements for the machine
    running VMware Workstation are:
    • 2GB RAM
    • A 64-bit x86 Intel VT-x or AMD-V capable processor
    (with the feature enabled in the BIOS)
    • 1 Ethernet NIC
    • 16GB disk space
    The following software is required:
    • VMware Workstation 6.5.2 (Build 156735) –
    presumed to already be installed
    • VMware ESX Server 4.0 (Build 164009) ISO image
    This installation was tested on a Lenovo T60 laptop
    computer with the following specification:
    • Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T5600 1.83GHz CPU
    • 2GB RAM
    • Intel PRO/1000PL Ethernet NIC
    • Windows XP Professional with SP3
    • VMware Workstation 6.5.2 (Build 156735)
    Note: The VMware ESX 4.0 installer will abort if it detects less than
    2GB RAM, so the machine running VMware Workstation must
    have a minimum of this amount of RAM installed. If, as in this
    example, 2GB RAM is all that is installed, it will also be necessary
    to configure VMware Workstation to allow most of the VM’s RAM
    requirements to be swapped out to disk. See section 2.1 below. © 2009 | 1

    VM Review

    Jerry blogger: VM Review I am a novice of VM, in fact, that VM is best for them? Being used VIRTUAL Machine, VIRTUAL BOX, VMware ~ have the following observations: VIRTUAL PC: WINDOWS7's "free features". It is easy to combine other WINDOWS systems. It only supports single-core in the VM ~ VHD file can be directly mounted to boot as if a normal PC. In my opinion, the Windows 7 Virtual Machine feature is useless if you get either one of other two programs. VIRTUAL BOX: SUN's product, forever OPEN SOURCE, forever free, and supports multi-core on any CPU number you want. Compilable with VHD and VMDK files~ It's a user's friendly program. VMware: In my opinion, it is the best overall. The most interest is the part is that on a X86 system, you can VM 64X system, support multi-core on 2, 4, 8,16.

    VirtualBox Release

    VirtualBox is a general-purpose full virtualizer for x86 hardware. Targeted at server, desktop and embedded use, it is now the only professional-quality virtualization solution that is also Open Source Software.
    Some of the features of VirtualBox are:
    • Modularity. VirtualBox has an extremely modular design with well-defined internal programming interfaces and a client/server design. This makes it easy to control it from several interfaces at once: for example, you can start a virtual machine in a typical virtual machine GUI and then control that machine from the command line, or possibly remotely. VirtualBox also comes with a full Software Development Kit: even though it is Open Source Software, you don't have to hack the source to write a new interface for VirtualBox.
    • Virtual machine descriptions in XML. The configuration settings of virtual machines are stored entirely in XML and are independent of the local machines. Virtual machine definitions can therefore easily be ported to other computers.

      Common misunderstandings of Windows (Windows 7 tweak)

      (Windows 7 tweak)

      The memory use issue: This is a big misunderstanding, many people are using XP era vision to look at win7, this is wrong, because both the memory usage mechanism itself is different. An analogy, 2G memory installed win7, turn around 500mb display occupied, 4G of memory installed win7, turn the occupier more than 1G of memory occupied by the greater will be. XP is basically fixed, 2G, and 4G system memory occupancy rate of less the same. Therefore, the set of theories with XP to look win7 itself wrong.

      Google redirects traffic away from China site -

      Google redirects traffic away from China site -

      SAN FRANCISCO—Google Inc. has shifted its search engine for China off the mainland but won’t shut it down altogether as the company attempts to balance its stance against censorship with its desire to profit from an explosively growing Internet market in the world’s most populous country.

      On Monday afternoon, visitors to were being redirected to Google’s Chinese-language service based in Hong Kong. The page said, according to a Google translation, “Welcome to Google Search in China’s new home.”

      Google’s compromise could resolve a 2 1/2-month impasse pitting the world’s most powerful Internet company against the Beijing government, but it also could provoke retaliation from the government.

      Google plans to keep its engineering and sales offices in China so it can keep a technological toehold in the country and continue to sell ads for the Chinese-language version of its search engine in the United States.

      But Google is still taking a risk. The revolt against censorship threatens to crimp Google’s growth, particularly if taking the stand prompts the Chinese government to retaliate by making it more difficult for the company to do business in that country. The ruling Communist party, for instance, could use its filters to block people on China’s mainland from connecting with Google’s Hong Kong-based service.

      On Jan. 12, the search company vowed to shake loose from government-imposed restraints on the Internet after determining that Google, along with more than 20 other U.S. companies, had been targeted in a wave of computer hacking attacks originating from China.

      The attackers also tried to pry into the email of human rights activists opposed to the ruling party’s policies, according to Google. That raised the spectre that the Chinese government or its agents played a role in the espionage, although Google never made a direct accusation.

      Despite its outrage, Google had hoped to persuade the Chinese government to let it run a search engine that could deliver unrestricted results. Failing that, Google wanted to find enough common ground to maintain its research centre and sales team in the country.

      It’s unclear whether Google’s attempt to skirt China’s censorship rules by using Hong Kong as a back door will cause more acrimony.

      “Figuring out how to make good on our promise to stop censoring search on has been hard,” David Drummond, Google’s top lawyer, wrote in a Monday blog posting. “We want as many people in the world as possible to have access to our services, including users in mainland China, yet the Chinese government has been crystal clear throughout our discussions that self-censorship is a non-negotiable legal requirement.”

      Drummond said it’s still possible that Google may pull some of its sales force out of China if the government blocks access to the Hong Kong search engine. About 700 of Google’s 20,000 employees are in China.

      The prospects for a truce seemed remote at times because China’s communist leaders publicly did little to conceal their indignation at Google’s defiance.

      But many analysts believed China didn’t want to lose Google completely, possibly because it might be interpreted as a setback in the government’s efforts to foster more innovation.

      For its part, Google wanted to stay in China so it could keep hiring computer programmers and peddling ads in the country. Google also believes its presence in China could lead to looser rules on censorship that would allow it to revive its search engine in the country eventually.

      If the compromise approach works, it would also ease the financial pain of Google’s stand against censorship.

      As it was, China accounted for a small fraction of Google’s US$24 billion in annual revenue. Analysts estimate Google brought in $250 million to $600 million from China. It’s unclear how much of that amount flowed exclusively from

      But stock market analysts have worried about the long-term consequences of Google’s actions in China. Opportunities there figure to grow faster than in the U.S. or Europe. Even if Google remained a distant second in search behind the homegrown Inc. in China, Google could still prosper as more Internet ads are served up in the country.

      Investors, not surprisingly, have seemed to be more interested in profit than principles. Google shares have slipped five per cent since its Jan. 12 warning about a possible shutdown in China. The technology-driven Nasdaq composite stock index has climbed about five per cent in the same span.

      China’s financial promise is the main reason other technology companies, including Microsoft Corp., seem intent on staying in China. If Google had exited the country completely, Microsoft and other technology companies might have an easier time recruiting China’s best engineers — a factor that motivated Google to keep its research centre there.

      Yahoo Inc. closed its offices in China in 2005 when it sold its business there to Alibaba Group, but remains a major player in the market through a 39 per cent stake it holds in Alibaba.

      Google decided to set up a search engine inside China in 2006, even though that meant complying with rules requiring the omission of search results the government deemed subversive or pornographic. The complicity sparked widespread criticism among Google supporters, including some of its own employees, who believed the company was violating its “Don’t Be Evil” motto.

      But China has been one of the few markets in which Google doesn’t dominate. The prospect of Google’s search engine falling out of the picture has led investors to bet that Baidu will become an even more dominant force. Baidu shares have soared about 50 per cent since Google raised the possibility of leaving China.

      Even if had been shuttered entirely, the Chinese population might have still been able to do some Internet searching through Google. That’s because the company also has a Chinese-language version of its search engine on its U.S. site, But that might not always be reachable from China if the government uses its filters to block access, as it has done in the past.
