VirtualBox is a software that use virtualization technology that enable us to run another operating system (OS) in our current operating system. The operating system that is created by VirtualBox is called virtual machine (VM). Virtual machine means that the machine is only using virtual drive. That means you can delete the VM easily if you don’t want to use it anymore.

Although you can see a lot of Ubuntu Linux user use VirtualBox so that they can use Windows in Ubuntu, but you can also use VirtualBox in Windows so that you can test drive Ubuntu in Windows.

Below is the picture of how I use Ubuntu inside my Windows XP.

google page rank

Google just updated websites Page Rank. For those that never know, Google Page Rank refer to a rank scale from 1 to 10 for every websites or blogs. This Page Rank symbolize how Google view a website according to its importance.

How does Google know whether a blog or a website is important?

  • Google can tell from the amount of links from other URL to our blog. The rational is that if somebody make a link to us, it shows that there is something important at our blog. That’s why blogger keeps exchanging link because they want to increase the number of links to their blog.
  • Since Page Rank is something Google come up with, Google can also give Page Rank according to their own ‘suka hati’. That means, Google can drop your Page Rank by ‘suka hati’ too. Usually a niche blog (blog that focus on one topic) is more easier to get Page Rank than a ‘ rojak’ blog that contains a lot of stuffs in one blog.

Since live CDs have their own operating system, they do not need the OS inside your hard disk (ex: xp, linux, vista) to operate. Imagine that your PC has error and can’t load windows. For most people, they either format it or make it as slave in other PC. However, perhaps the PC only has software issue and only need a few click to settle it.
