Virtualization and Portability: The New OS Reality
Anonymous Reader writes "You know, the barrier that used to divide operating systems is almost a distant memory now. It’s no longer this or that, but it’s this and that. Thanks to virtualization solutions and Boot Camp, Intel Macs can now run any PC operating system, and the ability to have one machine that does it all is definitely something that appeals to many reasonable consumers. PC users sort of get the short end of the stick because besides Windows and Linux, there’s still not a really good way to run OS X on a PC. Therefore, if you’re curious about OS X, then you’ll have to buy a Mac, although at least you’ll be able to use your familiar operating system solutions in addition to Apple’s offering."
