Virtual 10.6 machine
Hey guys I was just wondering if anyone has had an success with running a virtual mac os 10.6 server in a virtual client like vm ware fusion 3. Snow leopard server is on the list for supported guest operating systems, but I can't find anyone who has tried it.
The other thing I am wondering is if I can run 10.6 server in virtual mode, how much of a performance hit will that be on a system like a quad or 8-core mac pro. I do a lot of video editing and use of after effects and can only afford to buy one machine, so I was thinking buy a 4core or 8-core machine to run my pro apps on and then have vm ware fusion 3 or something else run snow leopard server 24/7-365 so I can have a file share to move things around.
Do you guys think that is all possible?
Thanks, in advance!!

I had it on my laptop for testing a week ago and it worked fine.
with day to day apps open it brought my machine to a crawl. I wouldn't really be to worried about 4 core v 8core but more about how much RAM you can through at the machine.
