Seems virtualbox has the edge here.

I didn't realize that before. I've been so use to VMWare and I figured commercial software was better than freeware, but maybe not. I may check out VirtualBox too.

Yea I just looked over the VirtualBox install and it's way more complicated than VMWare. The VirtualBox install requires Leopard (10.5.x) as well, whereas the VMWare install can be done with only the retail disc.

Well, got back from BB with OSX and tried it on my old AND 3200 PC. Forgot that CPU doesn't have virtualization. Everything worked good up until that though!

I might go grab a cheap PCI-E card to use in my current rig in the meantime.

Is that running in VMWare or VBox? Looks good so far.

VMWare. It updates from Apple too. The CPU is fast and the graphics are acceptable. The animations work pretty well.

I can haz some OSX?



Was able to get Audio to work, and my resolution. So I can use it full screen.

Are you guys able to use more than 1 core? Everywhere I see, Virtual Box is max 1 core. That's dumb.

No. Quite a few kinks I need to work out and I need to do a lot of updating. Update to 10.6.6, etc. It's a work in progress.
