Want to bring the (surprisingly good) power of Cortana to your MacBook? Well, there’s now two options.
Google has announced that, in collaboration with VMWare, it's starting to port Windows software to run in its Chrome OS. Time for Microsoft to worry?
Steve Herrod wants to put a virtual machine on your phone. Even if your phone is an iPhone.
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!
There are two popular options for virtualization software: VMware Fusion and Parallels. But which is better? MacTech did a detailed comparison and they found out that there was an obvious winner when it came to handling graphics.
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…
VMWare's Fusion 3—with full support for Snow Leopard and Windows 7—is out today. Besides being natively 64-bit in Snow Leopard, it lets you migrate a PC to your virtual machine, launches Windows apps like native apps, and more.
Remember the incident back in 2004 where Steve Ballmer threw a chair across the room when he heard an employee was leaving Microsoft to go to Google? That guy, Mark Lucovsky, is leaving Google for VMWare.
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!
VMware, which consumers know mostly for their Fusion desktop virtualization software, is moving into the mobile space, albeit surreptitiously. The company has announced VMware MVP, a thin layer of software that will interface between handsets' hardware and operating system, allowing for a standardized development…
To those who'd rather run two OSes at once than dual boot with Boot Camp, VMware has released the 2.0 version of Fusion. It includes over 100 new features, including the option to load Windows programs without a Windows desktop, a Time Machinesque backup utility, and completely mirrored file sharing independent of OS.…
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.
Walt Mossberg appears to be scooping again. This time, it's a review of VMWare's Fusion (Available this Monday, August 6th). The software, like Parallels, allows PC programs to run from within OS X. Mossberg compares them, simply:
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…
If you're a Linux user and want to get in on all the Microsoft Zune magic—yeah right—here's a way how. The solution involves VMware and allows you to have a virtual machine running Windows inside your Linux, which then lets you run the Zune software to sync up your Zune.
People were confused about VMware's presence at WWDC this year. Wonder no more, as the company's official site has spilled the beans about its upcoming Beta version for the Mac. With VMware, you can run "any PC OS on Mac OS X without rebooting," similar to the recent Parallels software. There should be an official…
