AMMAURO #2: Linux VM for developers

My 2nd video in the AMMAURO series shows how Windows and macOS (OS X) users can install a Linux virtual machine to help supplement their development environment, and get the most out of all platforms.

AMMAURO #2 - Linux VM under Windows or macOS to enhance your development

It’s been a long time since my last post, and my last video in the AMMAURO series. This new video lays the foundation for future videos about electronics design and experiments, hardware development and hacking, and software development. It shows you how you can (and maybe even should) keep running your existing Windows or macOS desktop development environment, but also leverage the full power of Linux in that same environment, using a VM (Virtual Machine).

NOTE: Step 6 in the video refers to instructions and commands to install some essential packages, which I’ll repeat below for your convenience. Please note that the following were taken from

  • Run the following for Ubuntu 14.04 and above:

    sudo apt-get install make unrar-free autoconf automake libtool gcc g++ \
      gperf flex bison texinfo gawk ncurses-dev libexpat-dev python-dev \
      python python-serial sed git unzip bash help2man wget bzip2
  • …and for newer versions of Ubuntu you may also need to run:

    sudo apt-get install libtool-bin

From time to time you will hopefully see me post new videos on my YouTube channel.

If you’d like to comment – say, with feedback, requests, or suggestions – the best way will be via the YouTube comments of each video.
