    Hi everybody:

    I want to buy a MacBook and, though MacOSX is a very nice OS, I'd prefer to work with Linux as my primary OS.

    Anyway, do you know if it is possible to do the following?

    1. Install a Linux distro [100% possible, I read several sites explaining how to do it].
    2. Install VMware workstation [100% possible]
    3. Install MacOS X as a VMware guest OS [possible?]

    Apart of legal considerations [though it would be legal because MacOSX would be running on Apple hardware], is this technically feasible? Does someone tried this with success?

    VMware have specifically crippled their software so that it won't work with Mac OS X on other operating systems at the request of Apple.

    He could run OS X server with Vmware... on OS X. :p I'm sure the power of Google can overcome any "crippling."
