Waiting for good virtualization
Authored by: djdawson on Apr 15, '06 09:22:20AM

I've already got access to both Windows PC's and Macs, so being able to dual-boot is a non-issue for me. What I'm waiting for is a good virtualization solution that will allow a guest operating system to run at close to native speed and allow convenient access on my Mac to the few Windows-only apps I sometimes need, such as Visio. The fact that the Merom processor should be out later this year and provide a nice performance boost is another reason I'm waiting. Finally, and it's unrelated to the virtualization thing, it looks like new higher speed wireless technology is finally coming out, such as the new 802.11n. I'm hoping the next gen of Apple's machines will include it.

Anyone who works in a technical related field (engineering, telecom, etc) knows that its quite difficult to alleviate your exposure to Windows. At least now we can have a single computer to run that one crappy Windows program and OSX to run everything else that life demands!
