Today I installed VMWare Fusion, downloaded an Ubuntu server image, and made three copies of it.

I wanted one image to test the io language, one to test the Rubinius virtual machine for Ruby, and one for testing the Scala language.

So far I have the io and rubinius VMs up and running. I haven't tested any io code yet, but I have tested some sample code that uses Actors against the Rubinius VM.

I'm doing this for my term paper for CSC464 which is about the Actor Model.
