Virtual Computers are the way of the future and VirtualBoxImages.com is poised to help usher in the post-pc, post-mobile computing age.
Many were surprised, even stunned when Steve Jobs, basically announced as well as began the assault on PC's. He was right, PC's were dead before the iPhone. Steve Jobs and Apple did a great job of showing the world there is always something new.

Desktop virtualization is transforming enterprise computing much in the same way
that the personal computer did in the 1980's and 90's. The shift then was away from the
When I first found VirtualBox and created my first Virtual Machine VirtualBox was still owned by a small company in Germany. Few people know of the project and fewer thought it was a good idea to build and distribute pre-installed virtual machines.
Along the was VirtualBox was purchased by Sun Micro System. Then Sun Micro Systems was purchased by Oracle.
My original goal was to become familiar with Linux servers and Linux desktops because clients were interested in a lower cost solution to Microsoft Windows solutions.
Over the past 2 years I have poured much effort into learning more about Linux by creating the Virtual Computer images available on the site.
Up until this evening, Linux has been installed either on "My" desktop, or the servers running in the background.
Tonight I am putting a "Linux Desktop" in a new place in the household. That function is one of , if not the most "Critical Path" in the home.
Tonight, my wife will get her first Linux Desktop.
The new desktop is complete with her "Old Windows XP" system as a Virtual Image.
I really hope I'm ready for this.....

I started VirtualBoxImages in December 2007 with one virtual disk image I wanted to send out to a couple of friends.
One of them suggested that I put together a tutorial to demonstrate how easy it is to setup a pre-made virtual disk image and get started.
PuppyLinux-4.00-k2 [veedee-Eyes].rar was selected as the demo image.
Now just over a year from the original release date of the Puppy Linux VDI there are over 1000 verified activations of the virtual image.
