Virtual Machine Options for ECS as Host:

VirtualBox (Open Source Edition)

Seems like the best alternative at the moment.

The RDP / USB Passthru features of the commercial version, available for free under the PUEL license (Windows / Linux / Solaris) are not available in the open source version. Pity. And I doubt that anything in this universe will induce Sun to release an ECS Version of the commercial code...

Virtual PC

Originally Connectix, bought over by Microsoft in ca. Summer 2003. Can run XP, but VERY slow. A rough idea is about 33% of the original host system can be used by Virtual PC. Won't install on newer CPUs - no support for Dual CPU, let alone MulitCore. AFAIK, Virtual PC was NEVER free on Innoteks site - there was a link to Connectix, where the actual sale was done...

  • Version: Virtual PC 2004
  • Last Version for ECS: 5.1

Reviews: 2004

Not supported any more, nor available commercially.

Serenity Virtual Station (AKA SVISTA/2)
  • Latest version: SVISTA/2 2004

Not supported any more, nor available commercially.
