I am buying a new AMD 6 core machine and would use it as development server machine. I want to achieve 2 things:
- have multiple Virtual machines on it to run various Operating systems (something like Xen) and
- be able to work on it as well (without using SSH/remote login etc.)
Now, if I use Xen I do not have an option of using it as dev machine, unless I resort to SSH and remote login ways. If I just have multiple partitions, then the idea of running multiple virtual machines for servers fails.
- So, I would like to know a strategy to achieve what I want to do in the description above.
- And in case I just run single OS, would Ubuntu or Debian be a good choice for a personal+development machine?
