In this post we'll see how to install Ubuntu virtually in windows platform. As windows platform we've used windows 8. For visualization we use a software named VMware player. And used Ubuntu iso file version 14.04. First you need to download VMware player, it is a freeware and may download by searching from any site.
After that download the iso file of Ubuntu, here i have used 14.04 version of Ubuntu and it is 970mb.

First install the VMware player as normal software installation process. After that lets see how we have done this dork step by step:

After opening VMware we’ll see the interface like that.

What advantages would this have over doing a dual boot?

It's nice to setup a quick dev environment. No reboot required to switch between the OSes. However, I'm having that nagging feeling that mehimu is just trying to do SEO.
