✔ Best Answer

A hypervisor is hardware virtualization (which is why Hyper-V on Windows 8 will only run if you have particular processors). Most VMs (VirtualBox, VMWare, for example) support either software or hardware virtualization.

Is there a practical reason for your question or is it homework? The Wikipedia article on Hyper-V is a good starting point for further research.

I ve got an i5 3570 processor and 16gb ram, HD 6750 etc...


I use it mainly for general purposes like browsing and videos etc...

And I have two monitors, so was thinking whether i can use it as a multiseat PC by just adding a mouse and keyboard..

i could find some softwares for multiseat, they are not free and Iam not planning to buy anything.

I have heard that some linux distros can do that effectively..

But on whole. i dont have an idea of where to begin.
