WinTel 2.1.1 released
OpenOSX today released WinTel 2.1.1, resolving potential issues with CDROMs and featuring zero-configuration network support for Windows XP. WinTel is an easy-to-use stand-alone application for configuring and utilizing the included open source "Qemu" and "Bochs" software, allowing users to install and use x86/Pentium-based operating systems on computers running Mac OS X. Version 2.1.1 adds an option for imaging CD-ROMs to an ISO-9660 disk image usable by WinTel, and includes updated tutorials and documentation. The update offers two modes of operation, one using "Qemu" for maximum performance and another using "Bochs" for complete compatibility. WinTel also emulates PowerPC, Sparc, MIPS, and ARM processors. WinTel 2..1.1 requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and is available as a Universal Binary providing support for Intel-based Macs as well as G4 and G5 Macs for $25.
