I've geeked out today. Over the weekend I set my computer to download Ubuntu 8.10 - and did it ever take forever to download (grumble, grumble freaking slow internet in the North grumble grumble) ... but it did download in it's entirety.
So today, I decided to Virtual Box it up on my iMac ... something that could either work nicely with no problems what so ever ... or all hell could break loose.
Well... the installation went more or less without any problems ... other than a slight kernel crash on the Mac side of things (guess I had one too many things going on in the background while Ubuntu was installing on the VM ... oh well... all is back to normal now).
And of course, pictures / screenshots of this wonderful experience for those of you who are geek inclined.
The whole process took about 40 minutes ... would have taken only 20, but with the kernel panic on the Mac side I had to do the ever so horrible power-button force shut-off (my poor Mac ... sniff, you haven't been shut down for 54 days .... now all of the sudden you freak out on me.... sigh). Later on, if it finishes downloading I'm gonna see how well Debian runs in VM on the Mac.
Oh the life of a geek.
