Yes there are VM wares available in the Linux systems. These VM software act as a platform over which you can install and run packages that do not support the LINUX environment. However these packages are utilized for their efficiency in networks and ultimate usage for uninstalling other Operating systems.

The software installed over it communicates with the OS and then the kernel of LINUX for processing. This package is found in all the leading versions of LINUX which are found in the open market at ease. You need not buy them. You can get for free and install them. The packages are sometimes pre available with the installation like in FEDORA Linux.

I will list below some of the virtual machine applications that support Ubuntu and or are also supported by Ubuntu.

  • Xen.org – The home of the Xen Project™ – this is the ever popular open-source virtual machine that is officially supported by Ubuntu. Even if it only supports a small amount of host and guest operating systems, it still offers high performance. It supports both as a guest operating system and a host. You can get the information on how to get it running on Ubuntu from Ubuntu Documentation Community Help Wiki Xen.
  • VirtualBox – VirtualBox is a very popular open-source virtual machine software created by Sun Microsystems. It is a multi-platform virtual machine that supports different operating systems like Microsoft Windows, Macintosh, Solaris, and Linux for host. To know more about how to get it into Ubuntu, please visit Ubuntu Documentation Community Help Wiki VirtualBox.
