Whatever happened to virtual appliances?

Sat, 2017-05-27 14:24

When I first read about virtual appliances I thought 'great, now I will be able to run any windows program on Linux without needing to install an entire OS in VB'

My understanding of this was that you could run a dependency analyser and then create a VB Appliance of that program containing just the program and it's dependencies. I know we have SNAP but is there an easy way to create VB appliances? I thought that one day we would be able to just pick up an appliance version of the program we want to run and install it.

Making tablet looking OS for desktop is stupid idea. but making application who are suitable and available for smart-phone and desktop seamlessly is a must !

Running Ubuntu on VM with WIN 10 being the host.

I would like to mount my USB to put some pdf's on it. Virtual Box keeps giving me this message.

Is PlayOnLinux still alive?

Sat, 2017-05-27 06:46

Their IRC is largely dead except for those asking for support and not getting any, bugs in the tracker are no longer being assigned and seem to by piling up and there's been no updates from the developers since January 2016.

Is it dead, Jim?

Is there a site or something where I can go to get news on Linux events? I would like to attend some events near cities like San Francisco, or Chicago, but I have no idea where or when they take place. Thanks for any information.

Help: How to autostart a script in raspbian?

Sat, 2017-05-27 03:02

I made a "magic mirror" with a raspberry pi and i cannot figure out how to autostart the script. Basically i want so that when you plug it into the outlet, and the pi boots up, it should load the software by running the scripts. Please provide detailed information as i've tried several things but cant figure it out.

Must be in the correct location to run the terminal command. The script is: location: /home/pi/MagicMirror terminal command: npm start

Question about steam.

Sat, 2017-05-27 01:41

Im building a computer right now, and have decided to go with Linux as the main os. If a friend has Windows, can I still play online games with them? Like left4dead for instance? I'm just leery because of the different servers with consoles and pc. Thanks much!
