Yesterday at Apple's WWDC VMware announced
a version of its virtualization product for Mac OS X, with a beta version to be made available later this year. VMware will be competing with Parallels, a relatively new virtualization solution that has gained a lot of ground in the past year. VMware would also be competing with Microsoft, a virtualization product it acquired from Connectix in 2003, but that's not in the cards. Shortly after the VMware announcement yesterday, Microsoft announced that it will be shelving Virtual PC for the Mac
, saying that transitioning Virtual PC to Intel-based Macs would be "similar to creating a version 1.0 release."
