#3: KVM, VIRTUALBOX OR VMWARE ? – In this article I want to talk about three great virtualization software for your desktop computer.
Why virtualize?
The current computers have faster CPUs and more RAM compared to those of 3 or 4 years ago. There is more ability to run a second operating system in parallel to your main operating system. But why do it?
To have another operating system (Windows, Linux or other)
For testing a new distribution
To prepare an environment dedicated to a product. For example, I installed a virtual machine with apache + mysql + everything I need for running a local a copy of my WordPress site

#2: WEBCAM SERVER ON LINUX – In these days all the new netbooks and most laptops have built-in webcam, or at least add one external costs very little, apart from the traditional use in video calls you can use our Linux box to create a monitoring device, it can be used to monitor your child while you are at another PC, or your pet while you are at work, or have a home-made video surveillance system for your properties.
