One of the more complicated operating systems that people are intimidated to use especially those who have little background about computers, is the Mac Operating Systems ver X or more commonly known as the OS X. Being intimidating as it is, the OS X is actually one of the more powerful and robust operating systems there is to use. In fact, with its being robust, it was more difficult to endanger the whole OS package.
However, one should worry no more. With Virtualization, you can generally make it look like you are using any OS platform in so many ways without exposing and harming your real or host operating system. This is very timely and logical since the Mac OS X is very expensive by nature and damaging it is one of the least things that you should ever do. In addition to that, repairing the damage to your OS X will perpetually put you into a very compromising situation every time you use it.
You will need to virtualize your Mac OS X not only to protect it from any potential damage during your “experimentation” period but also when you virtualize it, you can basically utilize all the resources of the OS X operating as if there is an actual usage of it in the real world.
In addition, should you want to utilize other OS platforms like Windows 2000, XP SP2, Ubuntu, or Solaris, you can virtualize all these platforms under your Mac OS X thereby, giving you the potential usage of all the capabilities of these OS without the hassle of installing and switching the OS one after the other.
