VMware on Mac OS X

Various sources (this notice on and this notice on MacNN) alerted me this morning to the announcement by VMware of a Mac OS X-based version of VMware Workstation, intended to run on any Intel-based Mac system.

I can’t tell you how long I’ve been waiting for this (like so many others). I first pined for virtualization on Apple back in February of this year, and I’m thrilled that VMware is now stepping up to the plate to provide a Mac OS X-based version of VMware Workstation. Here’s hoping they also release Mac OS X-based versions of their remote consoles as well, so that I can manage virtual machines hosted on VMware Server or ESX Server from my Mac as well.
