Apple Virtualization Drawing Near

Remember me pining for virtualization on Apple’s new Intel-based Macs? That day has drawn much, much closer with the release of Universal binaries of Q, a Mac OS X port of QEMU.

It’s still an unstable build, but with Universal binaries available for Q, we now have the option of running x86 operating systems on an x86-based Apple with Mac OS X as the host. Sweet! This will probably be one of the very first things I try once I get my hands on a new MacBook Pro; unfortunately, my budget being what it is (i.e., too limited for a new MacBook Pro right now), that will have to wait. But that’s OK, as it will give the excellent Q project more time to mature and develop.
