updated 12:15 pm EST, Thu February 16, 2006

WinTel 2.1.0 released

OpenOSX today began shipping its WinTel 2.1.0 application, featuring "Qemu" software for dynamic translation, which it claims provides 300-600 percent greater performance over the previous version on Intel Macs. WinTel is an easy-to-use stand-alone application for configuring and utilizing the included open source "Qemu" software, which allows the use of x86/Pentium-based operating systems on Macs running Mac OS X. OpenOSX also announced that for the first time, Microsoft Windows XP is an OpenOSX recommended guest operating system on Intel Macs. WinTel allows host operating systems and applications such as Microsoft Windows to run in a protected, virtual environment within a window under Mac OS X. Apple's new Intel-based Macs allow instructions to be dynamically translated, drastically enhancing performance. WinTel contains three sets of binaries optimized for PowerPC G4, G5 and Intel processors. Version 2.1.0 also simplifies usage, and eliminates several minor potential issues. WinTel 2.1.0 requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and is available for $25 via download.
