Can Mac OS run in the Windows and Vice Versa??
what would be the advantage of doing so?? is there disadvantage because it will eat up memory in windows???
I'm almost 100% sure you can do OSX in Windows simply by using VMware or possibly even QEMU. Windows in OSX would be possible through the same method assuming there is VMware for OSX or a similar program.
As for the memory issue. Yes, VMware uses up A LOT, and I repeat, A LOOOOT of memory when you are running windows and another operating system on top in VMware.
I have run VMware inside windows before and running Debian linux inside VMware, my computer that has 1GB of RAM was running at 80% memory usage constantly, normally my computer only uses about 30-40%. If you do run an OS inside an OS usually 2GB or higher is my suggestion.
Thank you for this information. ani how about using windows in a MAC OS??/ any idea?
MacOS runs flawlessly on almost any normal PC with a little tinkering. Nothing more on that.
Apple's Boot Camp is the official way to run Windows XP on an Intel Mac.
i have heard that Microsoft and Apple Inc. are heading for an agreement that will enable users to install MacOSX on a normal PC and vice versa without using software such as VMWare??
is that true??
They may be talking about doing it, and personally I would love if they did. However, since Microsoft sells purely software and Apple sells both hardware and software. Apple says in their license that you must use Apple software only on Apple hardware or else you are violating their copyright. On the other hand since Microsoft does not, not benefit from you putting Windows on a Mac versus a PC since they only sell software. Putting Windows on a Mac is perfectly legal since it says nothing about it in their copyright policy.
If Apple and Microsoft do make some sort of an agreement saying that Mac OSX can be installed on PC and Windows on a Mac then that seems like it would hurt the Mac market much more than it would hurt the Windows market. Because once you can put OSX on a PC...what is the advantage to buying Apple's extremely overpriced hardware? If some sort of an agreement does come to be then I think we will see the demise of Apple computers and a rise to Apple operating systems side by side with Microsoft operating systems.
Yes, Mac OSx can be run on Windows and on Linux what ever, but you must have installed some kind of virtual machine. I prefer VMware on openSUSE 10.2 with 1GB RAM on VM, that's my VM on which I'm learning Mac OSx.
I have thought that Apple would die many times. They seem to keep on. Look @ Ipod. Apple does not need computers.
About the OS. I am talking from ignorance here, but now that apple is using the intel chip the hardware for Apple is different. There is no proprietary hardware in Apple. Apple is now a software company. There is no reason for them not to open their OS except for bad marketing.
Yes... a PC can run os x.
yes a mac can run windows.
If Apple made an OS X installer for PC and sold it... I would most def. buy it.
