I have been experimenting with the best way of having both Windows and MAC. Linux is great for servers – but you dont need it for apps. I’ve got Lion on a 27 Inch iMac. So I loads up Oracle VirtualBox. Its like VMWare except its free and its amazing. So within maybe 1/2 hour I got Windows 7 running in a seamless mode – which means I really do have the best of both. I need Mac for development and xcode – but I can also run the Windows sessions on Visual Studio – works like a charm.
https://www.virtualbox.org/ – you can get the Mac version here. It’s really very easy to set up.
I am going to get a 4Gb upgrade for starters – I put Windows 64 bit on as well – so it makes sense to have a bit more. But you can’t do two things at once so VB seems to allow you to reallocate. I really like the seamless mode – just works together very nicely.
