Virtual Box Updated (v.4.1.4)

Virtual box has been updated to version 4.1.4. It has seen a couple updates since I last blogged about it, but things have been crazy around here and I haven’t gotten around to blogging about it. For those of you who don’t know, Virtual Box is a great way to run Windows on a Mac. You can also run other operating systems if you choose to do so, and all within a “virtual box” running on your Mac. Download the latest version from the Box File Widget (I had to break it up into parts) or from their homepage. The following is a list of the changes from the changelog.

VirtualBox Updated v.4.0.2







VirtualBox, the free virtual OS tool for Mac OSX, has been updated. Version 4.0.2 for Mac OSX can be found on their homepage.

    Boot Camp Now Runs Windows 7

    Apple’s boot camp, the software used to run multiple operating systems, now supports Microsoft Windows 7. What does this mean for you Mac users? It means that if you were running boot camp with Windows XP but you’ve been hankering to use Windows 7 alongside your Mac OSX, now you can. Run your software updates by clicking the apple in the top left hand corner of your screen and selecting Software Update. By updating your Boot Camp software you will be up to date with the 3.1 baseline and able to run Windows 7. For those of you who are about to shout out about rEFIt, you can spare the air because I’ve already blogged about this great efi tool. For the rest of you who don’t use rEFIt, update your boot camp so you can run Windows 7.
