    Microsoft Windows (3.1 and higher)
    Linux (All major distributions and 2.4 derivatives)

    No Apple to be found... funny, since Mac OS is derivative of the UNIX platform. But then again, there is something to be said about a company that massively locks down their phone products and so forth :/

    Apple's EULA does not permit installing Apple software on non Apple branded hardware. Thus, it is not supported by VMware.

    Can it be done ....yes. Is it

    Our company Orchard Parc has a different solution. We deliver integration technology that brings the Mac to Vmware, Xen and Microsoft. Apps can be launched locally or from the "cloud", and all data can be maintained securely behind the firewall in the data center. It can also be distributed to the desktop (assuming sys admin permissions) and re-synch to the server on re-connect. This addresses off line use.

    The solution provides full "real time" graphics capabilities (not just streaming video) and full VOIP over LAN, WAn and WiFi connections.

    And it is fully Apple EULA compliant.
