Virtualization is a framework or methodology of dividing the resource of a computer into multiple execution environments, by applying one or more concepts of technologies. This new virtual view of the resource is not restricted by the implementation, geographic location or the physical configuration of underlying resources.
Commonly virtualized resources include computing power and data storage.
The creation and management of virtual machine is often referred to as server virtualization.
If you want to choose which operating system to use among many then, either you have to install a multi-boot loader that lets you choose what OS to load during boot-up time. But that involves some experience and a little bit of skill, and partitioning hard disks is not for the faint-hearted or one more thing you can do you can use a different hard disk for each operating system and swapping the required hard disk during boot time, but this solution is really very costly.
Now the best solution for choosing one among many operating systems is virtualization.
With virtualization, you can install new operating systems as easily as installing a new game on your PC, and you can run more than one operating system at the same time.
With virtualization we are looking Forward to Hardware Independence
