Wasting time…….With Linux!

Inspired by the movie Inception, I thought that I’d have a go at getting three operating system’s deep with everyone’s favourite free VM generator, VirtualBox!

Below is a screen-capture from my system running three flavours of Ubuntu deep.

My specs are: Late 2012 (10,1 Model) MacBook Pro Retina 15in, Intel® Core™ i7-3720QM CPU @ 2.60GHz × 8, 16gig RAM, 512gig SSD: Running Ubuntu 13.04 x64 (on its own partition).

Specs

The stunt: Ubuntu 13.04 with VirtualBox running Linux Mint 15 XFCE; running VirtualBox which in turn is running Lubuntu (rather slowly).

Powered by Linux & executed by VirtualBox.

Next time I get really bored, I might try going deeper, but I will really need to plan out the resources granted to each VirtualBox VM.

For this example I think I granted 10gig RAM to Linux Mint, and 2gig to Lubuntu, but doing anything within Lubuntu was like wading through molasses (in snow boots).

Hope you enjoyed!
