OpenOSX ships WinTel 3.0
OpenOSX has released V3.0 of its WinTel application. The software is used to operate Microsoft Windows and Ubuntu Linux within a window on Mac OS X. The update includes a disk image with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed and runs most of the instructions of the virtual machine natively to boost running speed. Utilizing an emulation mode, the application mimics several different processors including PowerPC, Sparc, MIPS, and ARM.
WinTel 3.0 includes various disk images of open source operating systems such as Ubuntu Linux, FreeBSD, and FreeDOS. The software is also able to run Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows XP.
WinTel 3.0 requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later and can be downloaded for $25 or shipped on a CD for $30. Customers can also purchase a CD subscription for $80 which includes limited tech support and free updates for six months.
