A Quick Linux VM on Windows 8 with Vagrant
We’ve mentioned Vagrant here before – we’re using it to cross-compile custom kernels for the Raspberry Pi, and it’s a great way to run development instances of various operating systems in a fast, reproducible fashion. If you’re just looking to get a GNU/Linux prompt to play around with, it’s also a pretty good way to go.
The official documentation is actually really good, and doesn’t need too much elaboration, at least for the basics, but getting Vagrant up and running on windows takes a little more hoop-jumping than on other platforms, so I put together a short guide on getting a quick Linux VM on Windows with Vagrant.
