Now Microsoft Virtual pc is free. VMWare server is free, and a whole lot more virtualization programs are available for pc's, but why not macs? I would really like to use VMWare on macs. there's parallels, but it's not the same. virtual pc costs money for macs, and i don't think vmware will ever release its software for macs.

Maybe if you Googled like I did, you might find something:

http://fink.sourceforge.net

Fink isn't an emulator, but it allows you to run Linux apps on a Mac. That would allow you to use VMWare on a (Intel) Mac.

You know, you remind me of someone.......

I'm not really looking for programs, just for an answear to why vmware doesn't make products for macs. And who do i remind you of?

And who do i remind you of?

Your evil twin, i think. You know- the one who used to flame in the Mac forums. :mrgreen:

well, my evil twin was pretty evil. but i'm the good one, i don't flame fourms. but why do you say i remined you of him?

but why do you say i remined you of him?

That part wasn't my comment, it was joeprogrammer's.

anyhow, vmware released vmware workstaion for the mac, so i guess i'll be buying that along with a mac pro. i could probably run 64 vms at the same time, that's a lot.
