Trying Xubuntu as VMWare Host on Laptop
Needed to reinstall VMWare Server (the free version) on my Thinkpad T61 widescreen so decided to try out Xubuntu (XFCE instead of Gnome/KDE) as the host. Should use a bit less memory and disk space so the VMs should work a bit better, if not noticeably better. The VMServer software wouldn't install properly with Xubuntu 8.10 so reverted to 8.04.1 which is supported per the VMWare Web site.
