Moka5 beta for Mac OS X

Moka5 today announced the beta release of Moka5 for Mac OS X, enabling users to run VMware Fusion to port a virtualized desktop -- known as a LivePC -- to nearly any other computer using a flash drive. Moka5 leverages leading virtualization technologies to provide hassle-free mobile computing environments, according to the company, in the form of LivePCs. Moka5 for Mac beta is available for free, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later running on an Intel-based Mac.

Moka5 for Mac beta allows LivePCs to take virtualization beyond running different operating systems on a Mac computer by providing VMware Fusion users with features like self-healing capabilities, user data protection, and automatic updates.

"Moka5 for Mac beta gives VMware Fusion users access to the Moka5 LivePC Library, a community-generated selection of LivePCs for many uses," the company said. "Moka5 for Mac beta allows VMware Fusion users to test drive various Linux systems, such as Ubuntu, SuSE and FreeBSD as well as commercially-available Linux solutions such as the $199 Walmart PC, One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) and EeePC environments."
