If you install and configure samba on the Linux host, then the Windows VM can see the host as a server, and can copy and save files from the Linux system. This way, if you have special Windows proprietary software, or a printer that is not supported in Linux, you just jump over to Windows and copy the document and send it to the Lexmark or Canon or whatever.

yup, been doing that for years. solves a lot of problems.

Somewhat finished (*) Gentoo 64-bit install, using kernel 3.0.6 and KDE 4.6.5. The wallpaper shows a minor train station near my parents' place.




(*) I will probably realise that I still need some progs later on (once I want to start them and think like, "Oh forgot to emerge that one") and I still need to adapt the ACLs of my data partition to be able to access it without Gentoo acting like a d**k.

Played Doom 3, Serious Sam first and second encounters, Quake 1 x64, and Quake 2. Games work great.


Installed Wine and run Delphi 7. Programming and compiling work perfect :)

Let's revive this thread a little.

A fresh install of Gentoo X86_64, using Linux 3.3.8 and KDE 4.9 with some desktop and icon themes and an adjusted colur scheme.





------------------------------------------------------

Interesting how well FF looks with this colour scheme. TBH I feared the worst but it came out pretty nicely.




-------------------------------------------------

Clementine looks nice this way. :)

Tried to install Slitaz on the netbook in sig. Had some issues (couldn't boot from HDD and WLAN didn't work), so I'm downloading Lubuntu now. Which is sad, because the live version is very likeble.

Did you install the GRUB or LiLo bootloader correctly to the MBR? Selecting the device path /dev/sda (without anything behind that) should work.

Lubuntu with nothing changed. Works pretty well. Some system stuff, like the Software center and everything that has anything to do with managing packets and so on, are brutally slow for some reason, but otherwise it works very well. It's even snappy! :laugh:

And my wireless Logitec M305 which I thought was dead because windows doesn't recognize it? Works too. As well as the printer, just like that. I had to install some additional stuff to make the WLAN work though.

Yeah it is a bit weird that.. I was on Xubuntu (6.10 I think so it was a while ago) full time for at least 6 months. Nothing really worked they way it was supposed to, but most things I wanted I eventually got going. I wouldn't use it as my main system actually, but sometimes I get into the tinkering spirit and then Linux is awesome.

This machine will essentially be a typewriter though so I'm shouldn't have to mess about with it too much but anything can happen. :)

Also, now mouse gestures on the trackpad works.

Linux are excellent work machines. It's hard to take Microsoft serious after they launched 2012 with the metro interface. Seriously.

Not great looking UIs, I save those for my home machines.
