Mac OSX in VirtualBox (Works in Windows and Linux)
Ever wanted to give Mac OS X a try without buying a Mac? You can run it in VirtualBox under both Windows and Linux. The initallation is not that difficult, but there’s one thing you should know: to be able to run Mac OSX in Virtualbox, your CPU needs hardware virtualization support. You’ll also need some pretty good hardware as Mac OSX requires around 20GB of disk space and 1 GB of RAM (on top of what your system needs to run).
VirtualBox is an application that you can use to try various operating systems in a virtual environment and thus without affecting your current OS. All you need is an ISO for the OS you want to try out (be it Mac OSX, Ubuntu or other Linux distributions or Windows). If you’ve never tried it before, I strongly recommend you give it a go.
And speaking of VirtualBox, why not give Ubuntu a try too? It looks really good and it’s free/open source too!
