Do You want run windows system, windows application e.g. Microsoft Office or Visual Studio on one physical local Apple machine like iMac or iBook with installed OS X System? It is no problem. Below I present a few most known virtual machines and emulators for Mac OS X.
In case of Windows 10 architecture I suggest using SSD Hard Drive due to performance.
Below I present two most known environments:
- Parallels Desktop – Amazing and relevant tools worth it’s price. If You are software developer and You want to use SDK compilers dedicated for Windows platform – that’s it very good choice. Personally I use MacBook Pro and iMac Retina 27″ with SSD hard drive and programs on windows runs excellent – PERFORMANCE this is very important issue in my software developer job.Parallel Desktop allows you to conveniently run Mac and Windows applications side-by-side without rebooting, while additionally providing tools for quickly moving files between operating systems, launching programs directly from your Mac dock.
The software features a simple setup wizard for beginners and advanced users, and moreover, it supports Retina displays and advanced 3D graphics. Parallels can also emulate another operating systems like: Linux, Unix and Solaris, but the tightest integration remains when coupled with Windows.
- CrossOver Mac – second very good emulator for Mac OS X.
