There are a few things to catch up on, but they prove interesting and an article on The Unofficial Apple Weblog sums it up pretty well:
Diane Greene, CEO of VMware, has mentioned that her company’s product is already being used to run virtualized versions of Mac OS X on systems from providers such as Dell and Hewlett Packard. Greene has claimed this was unintentional.
SWsoft CEO Serguei Beloussov, whose firm owns and provides fiscal backing for Parallels, has stated that Parallels will upgrade its own product to make it easier to run Mac OS X on non-Apple hardware. Beloussov also cited that this wasn’t deliberate, but the nature of the current Intel hardware allows for easier virtualization.
The end result could bring Mac OS X to PC hardware through two well supported products and could help widen the user base for the operating system.
Further details to be posted as they become available.
