Highlight from Hexxeh’s blog.

Using these images is super easy, and isn’t reliant on your device being compatible! For the VirtualBox downloads, you get a VDI file, or a VirtualBox Disk Image. To use this, just create a new virtual machine in VirtualBox, and when it asks whether you want to create a new hard drive or use an existing one, point it to the VDI file you downloaded and extracted. When asked how much memory you’d like to assign, 2GB is ideal, but 1GB should work fine. Using the VMWare downloads is even easier! Simply download, install VMWare Player and then double click the VMX file in the archive you downloaded.

Download and start playing around !

    As a newbie to virtualization i tried both in VMware player and Virtualbox. Couldn’t go fullscreen, stuck with a very low resolution.
