A virtual machine is running an instance of an OS within another OS by emulating the hardware and firmware of a bare machine.

 

This is just running a second virtual desktop instance with some permissions disabled completely.

Actually it doesn't really emulate hardware. That's what an emulator does. A virtual machine "virtualizes" hardware, if you will. For example, there are specific instructions that split a CPU into more vCPUs. That means that you can't run a virtual machine that runs on a different architecture, eg. ARM guest on x86 host, you'd need an emulator for that.

Emulation and virtualization are the same thing.


Waste of time

Candour and lies

For what I left behind

I know the price was high

 

No tears to cry

No words to make it right

But now I know

That home is where my heart desires.

 

 

Pyo.
