Today I had to deal with a device that can be connected to PC via Linux only (as there is no drivers for Windows). So, to be able working with it first I installed VMWare Virtual Machine under my Windows 7 host PC, then installed Ubuntu under this VM. However, to conveniently access the device using SCP protocol I was recommended to use WinSCP that is Windows tool. So, I installed Wine under Ubuntu and then installed and run WinSCP under Wine. In a conclusion, what I actually did is: I run Windows utility under Windows emulator running on Ubuntu which itself run under virtual Machine on Windows 7 host PC.
…Isn’t that crazy?
