    Question Running Mac OS X 10.5 on Ubuntu 8.04, how?

    Currently I'm dualbooting Ubuntu and Mac OS X on a MacBook, I need Mac OS X so I can run Adobe Flash CS3, but I'm getting kind of irritated by always having to reboot to switch operating systems, so that's my situation right now.

    So what I want to do is just run Mac OS X on Ubuntu through virtualisaton, and my question being, what virtualisaton technology supports running Mac OS X? I was going to go for VirtualBox but I can't see it anywhere mentioned that it support Mac OS X as a guest.

    Only VMware Fusion running on an OS X host officially supports an OS X guest.

    Yeah, you can't do that legally, maybe illegally, but I don't know.

    You can of course do the opposite, run ubuntu in a vm on os-x, that will give you pretty much the same experience, and I believe the vm software on os-X is pretty good. Theres Parallels, which is quite pricy, and also I think virtual box do an os-x version.

    Hope that helps
