Episode 55 – A computer in a computer in a computer

March 6, 2016

Virtual_BoyComputers, but not really! We put on our propeller beanies and really nerd it up this week to discuss virtualization. We talk about the philosophy of virtualization (while dancing a bit around the definition), the parts of a virtual machine, and how to configure a VM from an OS installer.

This one’s for you, Akago!

The song at the end of this week’s podcast is something great by someone modest.
