    Watch out guys. I have 32Gb ram and lots of ISOs.

    • response to previous attempt United States Noah Plotkin

      Noah Plotkin

      yes and what current OS are you running on your computer to run these ISO's???? also do you have a gaming computer/server computer that can use 32GB???? aslo depends on what CPU you have installed..... if you want to beat the record i would get a quad core processor to beat my record...which i will break in a couple of hours....

    I have a question. If I run Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Ubuntu Linux, Kali, and Fedora from a virtual program like virtualbox as he did, will it be valid and break the record?

      Good to see someone looking at these old categories! Since VirtualBox is "running" the OS, then it would be valid. The only thing specifically prohibited here, for obvious reasons, is a remote connection.

    I really like that "intellectuals" are getting records into the URDB, I like it when there's a balance of athletic/mental records being achieved - kudos to your effort! :)

  • response to this attempt United States Dan Leatherman

    Dan Leatherman

    Darryl, that is correct. Soon I will have 3 and be able to beat my own record.

    I can see how you can have 2 o/s on a pc provided a locked partition, but how would a person run them at once - virtual machines?

  • response to this attempt United States Dan Leatherman

    Good observation Dan, Video evidence to be submitted.

    How do we know this isn't just two separate computers placed next to each other?
