have been giving alot of thought lately to moving to a Mac as a primary development platform, leaving behind my 12+ year associated with Windows and even my more recent Linux influx. I think the best ever Windows go to with XP..Vista has yet to impress, and maybe finding this as an excuse I decided to play around with the MAC OS, without standing for hours at an Apple store with someone store guy bugging me. After a few days of tinkering, here is the result: Using pcwiz’s VM release, I have a fully operational Leopard VM running on my Windows Vista laptop. (Yes, Leopard VM ON Vista, not XP/Vista ON a Macbook)
This works well if you want to demo/play with the OS but is slow and you will not get any of the performance benefits of a real Mac. I did this to see if the usability is as credible as the hype says it is.
disclaimers : This is a test I did for educational purposes only. Buy a Mac OS Leopard license , or a Mac box if you plan to use a similar technique for daily work in a commercial environment.
