Apple will be doing that by the end of the year, it is already built into OSX from the beginning.

In the "Unmatched Ease Of Use" section on that page they write "Configure virtual machines using a simple web-inspired interface."

What do they mean by "web-inspired interface"? Is that a euphemism for "we copied somebody else's interface that we saw on the web somewhere but we forgot where so we can't give them credit and even if we did remember we wouldn't tell you where we stole it anyway so there and your feet stink." ?

"Driven by full support for dual-core processors and Intel Virtualization Technology (included in almost every new Intel-powered Mac)"

Which new Intel-powered Macs lack this virtualization technology?
They all use the Intel Core processors with this techology right? Does this company know something we don't? Are they referring to the early developer-only P4 models?


I don't mean to come off as critical of their product. I think it is a neat idea. I hope they provide it for the same low price ($50) as they do their existing products for Windows and Linux.

Maybe the Core Solos (ie, Mac mini and probably soon to be released Intel iBooks) don't have the VT technology? I don't know, I'm just guessing based on what I could google in a short amount of time.

See here:

[www.theregister.co.uk]

specifically, this quote:

"...The documentation we've seen indicates the current Core Solo chips lack VT, though the feature may make it to the upcoming ultra-low voltage Core Solo U1300 and U1400 processors...."
