Two operating systems

 

 

After its Ubuntu machines appeared to be selling well, Dell is considering releasing dual-boot and virtualisation machines that can run several operating systems at once.

According to the Reuters, Dell is developing consumer PCs that can run multiple versions of Microsoft's Windows and Linux software at the same time.

Dell chief technology officer, Kevin Kettler, added that the new Dell PCs would be able to simultaneously run multiple, software-generated computers on one machine.

While dual booting is novel, virtualisation is a more radical concept and might annoy Microsoft which has attempted to curtail any efforts to run vista on virtual machines.

Kettler said Dell is developing the machines with help from several partners, including EMC Corp's VMware unit, which is expected to go public through an initial public offering next week and privately held Swsoft.
