First there was Windows 95 on an iPad. People cringed, but apparently they did not cringe enough, as someone else has managed to get Windows XP up and running on an iPad. Macheads, avert thy eyes!
If you're anxious about switching from a PC to a Mac, consider this: There are a multitude of ways you can virtualize Windows within OS X, and they all work uniquely well. Here's how to choose the right one.
It'd be easy to get knotted up in jargon describing v.Clone, so let's stick with the concept for now: It's a syncable, complete image of your PC, which you can boot run from basically any other PC. And it's free.
In an interview with Computerworld, VMWare's head of mobile phone virtualization has indicated that the company wants to move beyond dual-boot systems to allow phones to run a private and work operating system at the same time. They've already demonstrated the potential on a Nokia N800 running Windows CE and Android…
Having tooled around with Compiz a bit in my previous life as an IT journalist, this list was especially poignant to a bloke like me. This simple bit of Jack Loftus history is why I share this nice little five slot Lifehacker list with you today. Enjoy. Virtually. [Lifehacker]
We talked about XP Mode—which runs programs that work in XP but not in Vista—in our Windows 7 RC1's hands-on. Now Microsoft is coming up with details about what hardware and licenses this will need.
Ironically, it's one of the biggest decisions you make when you get a Mac: How should I run Windows on it? Parallels or Fusion? An exhaustive battery of benchmarks by MacTech reveals a clear winner.
Ok, this is even cooler than we expected: a Nokia N800, loaded with VMWare's MVP hypervisor, is seen here running Windows CE and Android, at the same time. This is a big deal!
You probably already know that both we and Lifehacker enjoy running Windows on our Macs using Parallels. Well, MacHeist has a deal today where you can pick up a copy for just $49, which includes a copy of MacPilot. That price gets even sweeter ($10 sweeter) if you previously bought a MacHeist bundle. Get yours now if…
Remember that completely arbitrary rule by Microsoft limiting virtualization (which lets you run Windows concurrently with OS X on a Mac) to only the more expensive versions of Vista? It's now gone.
The three methods for running Windows on a Mac (Boot Camp, Parallels and Fusion) have been around for a while, but Mactech's numbers seem to be the first we've seen on how the three stack up on Leopard. The results weren't that surprising.
In CEO-orgasming news, Pano Logic announced their network-based Pano Device, which, using a main host, virtualizes a copy of Windows XP and Vista without the need for an actual PC. Coming equipped with an Ethernet jack for the network connection, along with three USB ports, a VGA port for the display and audio I/O…
Thanks to the magic of VMWare and Parallels (which let you run other operating systems on top of your own), you can try the OLPC operating system without actually having to be a child in a Third World country. All you have to do is download a pre-configured image, change some settings, and you're set. Possible uses…
We had a chat with the Parallels guys earlier today, and got some new information that should be very interesting to people who are even the slightest bit interested in running Windows on your Mac.
One of the main reasons why Mac users still use Boot Camp to run Windows Natively instead using virtualization software like Parallels is its lack of 3D gaming (OpenGL and DirectX) support. In Parallels Desktop version 3.0, now in final candidate development, you can finally use 3D gaming without rebooting.
