Virtualization


Information regarding the use of virtual desktop, machine and virtual encrypted disk can be found here.

Also some information about remote desktop using RealVNC I have collected hier.

TrueCrypt [3] is a open-source disk encryption software that creates a virtual disk within a file and mounts it as a real disk.

Another interesting software is the Synergy [2] . It makes possible to share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, It's useful for users with multiple computers on their desk since each system uses its own monitor(s). NoMachine NX [1] is also an excellent program for desktop virtualization to carry with you all the power of your office workstation and is available on windows and linux.

Softwares like VMWare Workstation [4] make possible to create and run multiple virtual machines on your desktop or laptop computer. Each virtual machine represents a complete PC, including processor, memory, network connections and peripheral ports. You can install an Operating System (Windows, Linux, …) that runs side-by-side on the same computer.
