Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Connectix has started shipping its implementation of Virtual PC with Red Hat Linux, at an expected street price of $99. Virtual PC is intended to allow Mac users to run PC operating systems alongside the Mac environment on their machines, and is now available in Dos, Win9x and Linux flavours, with Win2k promised for the end of March. The Red Hat Linux version was announced last month, and according to Connectix comes with Linux "pre-installed." Only sort of, obviously, but a lot easier than a ground-up Linux installation. It allows you to toggle between Linux and Mac, promises seamless access to PC networks, and allows a single Internet address to be shared between the two operating systems. Mac hardware continues to be supported even when you're running Red Hat. ®
