floridagram-bot<govatent> Oh yea. I haven't used workstation on windows. Does it have unity host? I've only used workstation in Linux hosts01:16
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> What is workstation?01:21
floridagram-bot<govatent> Vmware workstation is the equivalent of virtualbox for desktop use13:25
floridagram-bot<govatent> There's a free version called vmware player13:25
floridagram-bot<Ivoriesablaze> on windows, it has unity, not on linux13:26
floridagram-bot<Ivoriesablaze> unless i'm missing it13:26
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> Oh. VMware. I always use VirtualBox13:26
floridagram-bot<govatent> I think you right. Cause I've looked for it.13:26
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> You can get Unity in VirtualBox.  But I think Canonical nixed the old interface in favor of Gnome.13:27
floridagram-bot<govatent> I used to use virtualbox exclusively. But now it's kind of a given I'd use vmware products13:27
floridagram-bot<Ivoriesablaze> unity = seemless mode13:27
floridagram-bot<Ivoriesablaze> not unity desktop13:27
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> LightDM with the new UI.13:27
floridagram-bot<govatent> Yea. Unity is where the virtualize software will integrate the guest os apps into your main os seemlessly13:27
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> Oh.13:28
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> Ok.13:28
floridagram-bot<govatent> So you can't tell you are in a vm. Instead of doing a max window of your guest os. It's pretty neat13:28
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> Seemless Mode in VBox.13:28
floridagram-bot<govatent> I'm not sure if even virtualbox has that feature in Linux hosts13:28
floridagram-bot<govatent> Oh it does?13:28
floridagram-bot<Ivoriesablaze> it does13:28
floridagram-bot<Ivoriesablaze> yeah, though the windows 10 guest doesn't work that well with it13:28
floridagram-bot<Ivoriesablaze> i'm using a windows 7 guest13:29
floridagram-bot<govatent> Workstation is still a supported product. So there a public page for feature requests. I'll put a request for unity feature.13:29
floridagram-bot<Ivoriesablaze> okay, because i heard the nixed it after version 713:30
floridagram-bot<govatent> I'm running 1413:30
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> Um. If you're on Windows 10, you can run most things within WSL. You can get an X server for Windows like xming. Then within Ubuntu, within WSL, edit /etc/profile to include a line DISPLAY=:0.  That should allow you to operate seamless.13:30
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> It's not a VM but it works.13:30
floridagram-bot<govatent> Nice13:30
floridagram-bot<Ivoriesablaze> yeah, but i'm talking about a windows 10 guest13:30
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> You can also Remote X Display to Windows 10.13:31
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> Oh.13:31
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> I don't think you can seamless on Windows 10 guest at all.  Can you?13:31
floridagram-bot<Ivoriesablaze> yeah, using the windows 10 seamless mode in vbox is kinda buggy, open up the start menu and it disappears13:31
floridagram-bot<Ivoriesablaze> my team lead uses a windows 10 vm on his mac and it works decently13:32
floridagram-bot<Ivoriesablaze> well, unity mode because he uses vmware13:32
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> Hm. Well, personally I'm of the oppinion that Windows is good at graphics and GUI stuff.  Linux is good at server stuff.  I tend to use Windows host and Linux guest.  Everything works.13:32
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> Linux is also best at working with files, devices, and textual manipulation.  I need both.13:34
floridagram-bot<Ivoriesablaze> yeah, but i like my linux running on bare metal13:35
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> I wouldn't even know how to open a serial port and send exact bytes to a mobile device through Windows.  You can do it from the command line in Linux.13:36
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> *without designing a program13:36
floridagram-bot<chuckr> The cars a Hyundai19:37
floridagram-bot<AdamOutler> What @chuckr?22:25
floridagram-bot<chuckr> The picture I side the car.22:28
floridagram-bot<chuckr> Hate phone keyboard22:29
