Virtualization – Q

April 14, 2006

Further to my last post on this subject, there’s another option for running another OS on a Mac.

[Check out Q](

> Run Windows, Linux and a lot more Systems on your Mac. Q is a feature packed cocoa port of QEMU: Switch fast between guest PCs. Save and restart guest PCs at any stage. Easily exchange Files between Host and Guest. Q makes use of OS X most advanced technologies like openGL, quartz and coreaudio to accelerate your experience with your guest PC. Please remember: At the present state, [QEMU]( is still considered ALPHA software.

According to the blurb on the site, this is the first ‘more or less stable’ universal build of Q.

Note: They say they’re still having some problems with some hardware and windows.

Well duh.. Windows isn’t designed to be used. :-)

Anyway, if you want to test some stuff, and have a copy of another OS lying around. Give it a try then leave a comment here please. I and others would be interested in your experience with this software.
