I am in the process of setting up a development environment for a new project and wondered about the theoretical possibility of my ideal set up.
I would like to use virtual machines in order to make my development environment portable and persistent. I do not have any problems with this, I already have a ubuntu desktop booting from vmware player on my windows 7 desktop.
Here is where it gets tricky...
Ideally I would have this image stored on an external disk drive. If I wanted work remotely I would be able to take this external drive and attach it to my macbook pro running leopard and boot the image and continue where my development stopped on my windows 7 desktop.
Is this possible? is there any software that better/worse for this kind of set up.
Has anyone done this before?
