Linux Environment

Although SystemWeaver is not available for Linux, we have done limited testing and can recommend VirtualBox as an alternative for developers working in Linux who need to access SystemWeaver which can only be run in Windows. VirtualBox is a free, general-purpose full virtualizer for x86 hardware, targeted at server, desktop and embedded use.
