can Open VZ be installed with Virtual Box also on the same linux machine? The Open VZ to run a number of linux flavors simultaneously while Virtual Box could be running windows XP??
This would allow teaching where the students could see how programs look and work in different OS and platforms.
Open VZ is much more efficient for running Linux distributions and Virtual Box would allow students to also see a Windows environment. SO Especially if one wants to teach Open Office or other cross platform programs or programs written in cross platform languages or show how cool Linux is compared to Windows this would be nice. Less memory would be needed than if one had to run all these OSes in Virtual Box.
Thanks for any ideas, knowledge, or comments, Markandeya

I see no reason for it not working. I use vmware server on a few different machines that are also running an openvz kernel.
