I have been looking at my options lately with regards to Virtualization/running a PC operating system on my MacBook. Last year I trialled Bootcamp but found that the PC software I wanted to run just didn't work properly. So I started looking into other options. While running a holiday programme for kids I trialled VMware fusion, the week I used it I found it did what I wanted and requested that we trial it in our computer labs but our techie was not keen. So I kept my eye open for other options. I then came across Parallels, Andy Feild was the one who mentioned it and I downloaded a trial but just before I bit the bullet and bought the software Miguel Guhlin mentioned in a New Years Day tweet VirtualBox. Here is a link to a beginners guide.
S0 thanks to Miguel I think I saved some $ and have a PC operating system on my Mac!
Wait, there is more.... here is a ning that Miguel linked me up to all about virtualisation!
