Advice Please: Running Ubuntu On My Mac
I run Ubuntu on my Dell desktop PC. But — for the sake of my commitment to this Web site — I’m ready to add Ubuntu to my Apple MacBook Pro notebook. I’m not an expert (yet) on virtualization options that will allow me to run Ubuntu and Mac OS X on my Mac. So, I’d welcome some thoughts on the two options I’m considering.
1. VMware: My neighbor is an IT manager at a major cable company. He uses VMware to run Windows XP, Windows Vista, Novell SuSE Linux and Mac OS X on his MacBook Pro. Frankly, this sounds like the way to go.
Generally speaking, I’m leaning toward VMware — especially since my neighbor is running the type of configuration I’m marching toward. But I’m keeping an open mind. If there are smarter approaches than the two I’ve mentioned above, I’m all ears.
