I have this situation, as I'm moving forward I'm finding it more and more necessary to run other Operating Systems (mostly Windows), but I don't want to deal with the fuss of virtualizing software. Parallels just decided to take my whole system down when I was doing something as trivial as trying to install Ubuntu (Trying this before buying a Vista copy). I've had a history of bad luck with all of the "virtualization" and "emulation" solutions and I really don't believe in them. What I'd like to do instead would be to purchase a small box for windows use, but rather then having a separate KVM for the machine, I want to "see" the screen within OSX and be able to control everything, basically I want the "visualization" experience but having everything run on a real dedicated box. I figure even a $250 mini computer will vastly outperform anything that I can visualize within OSX. Anybody know if this is possible or what it's called? Edit: I think it's a VNC, is there a straightforward guide to which VNC software I should use both on the mac and on the remote machine?
