The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, May 12.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   VirtualBox - Run Several Virtual Systems On A Single Host Computer

   Sun's xVM VirtualBox offers full virtualization on many host
   platforms for many guest systems like Linux, Windows, BSD,
   OpenSolaris and many others.  VirtualBox requires no changes in the
   guest systems and provides for guests as far back as MS-DOS and
   forward to Windows Vista and OpenSolaris.

   In this presentation, Daryl Fonseca-Holt, from the University of
   Manitoba, will explain what kind of virtualization VirtualBox
   offers, the major features it has, and some of the uses it can be
   put to.  During the demo, Daryl will show how to set up for a new
   guest in VirtualBox, install the guest, and show the effect Guest
   Add-ins have on the user experience of the guest system.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our meeting location: The IBM offices, at 400 Ellice Ave.
   (between Edmonton and Kennedy). When you arrive, you will have to
   sign in at the reception desk, and then wait for someone to take you
   (in groups) to the meeting room. Please try to arrive by about 7:15pm, 
   so the meeting can start promptly at 7:30pm. Don't be late, or you may
   not get in.  (But don't come too early either, since security may not
   be there to let you in before 7:15 or so.) Non-members may be required
   to show photo ID at the security desk.

   Limited parking is available for free on the street, either on Ellice
   Ave. or on some of the intersecting streets. Indoor parking is also
   available nearby, at Portage Place, for $5.00 for the evening. Bicycle
   parking is available in a bike rack under video surveillance located
   behind the building on Webb Place.
