    Preinstalled VM's and conversion between formats


    This is in case you look for a VM and don't have the ISO or want to skip some installation time.

    There are also quite a few pre-installed VM's (virtual appliances) for VirtualBox too. OVF and OVA can be directly imported in Vmware as well, VDI disk formats will need to be connverted to VMDK first if you want to use them in Vmware Player/WS.

    Here is a pre-installed VM for Zorin OS:
    Zorin OS | VirtualBoxImages.com
    On that site they provide tons of other pre-built VM's, linux-flavoured.

    Official Oracle development VMs are found here:
    VirtualBox VMs for Developers

    Just in case,
    Converting virtual hard disks easily:
    - VDI to VMDK: vdi 2 vmdk GUI Converter | Free Development software downloads at SourceForge.net
    - VMDK and others to VDI: https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?t=22422

    Cheers!

    Yeah, this preinstalled stuff may be handy, but I prefer to install it myself. Takes only a few minutes and then I can chose my iso and installation options.

    Zorin is nice too, but it is a bit buggy and has a lot less features than Mint Mate which I prefer. I have both and sometimes play with Zorin.
