    Ubuntu on Mac OS VM?

    Hi,

    Has anyone successfully installed on a Mac VM like VMware or Parallels? If so, do you know if there's any good documentation out there to help walk me through it?

    Thx

    Apparently VmWare doesn't work on Mac's. I could only find vmware for mac in Fusion VmWare, and it's not free. Virtual Box runs on a Mac but I didn't search for tutorials. They do have pre-loaded boxes available. I've not tried them so can't say how they work.

    VirtualBox runs well on Mac OSX and allows you to use any OS that is supported by VirtualBox, among them Ububtu.
