    The VMWare site suggests that the Beta will be released at a later date… So I guess there's nothing to do but sign up for the Beta and wait for it to arrive.

    I think VMware can only work on a Intel Based Mac. Are there any Virtual Machine can work on PowerPC Processor and can load this OLPC Image

    Hi folks,

    It seems alright with VMware. What about Parallels?

    I have tried both VM and for me Paralles is better for me.

    I'm looking for the OLPC build image. None of the many links on the web right now seem to go anywhere, including from this blog entry.

    Where'd it go?
