Now that ToriOS is in beta I am starting to run a few tests to see how it runs in a virtual machine (using virt manager as the front end to qemu)
My set up for this is as follows
The Install went fine, and I can now boot in to the desktop from the virtual machine.
If you want to get involved and help then feel free to get in touch via the website. If you have an OLD computer around and want to help test this on hardware rather than in a virtual machine and report any issues, then this would be really useful. ToriOS is aimed at older hardware, perhaps running XP which is now end of life. So you can replace XP with a fast, responsive operating system.
