Occasionally we Mac users still need to have access to a Windows or Linux operating system. Whether to start up that one last remaining piece of Windows software or to test a website in Internet Explorer.
Boot Camp is most of the times though, a bit too slow to access. Rebooting to Windows just for this?
Luckily there are virtualization solutions like VirtualBox. This app allows to virtualize Linux and Windows computers so they are just a couple of clicks away.1
Current Version: 4.1
Operating System: OS X, Linux, Windows, Solaris
There’s actually a feature in VirtualBox that “freezes” a machine’s state, making tedious boot times become (almost) unnecessary. ↩
