Simon Fell > Its just code > WWDC

Thursday, June 5, 2008

Unless you've been living under a very large rock, you know its WWDC next week and everyone is hopped up on predictions of OSX 10.6 and 3G iPhones with GPS & espresso machines built in, and of course the release versions of iPhone 2.0 and the SDK. Besides all the iPhone news everyone is waiting for, I'd like to see Apple step up to the plate on virtualization, and let us run OSX virtualized, its a royal pain in the ass to support OSX apps because the only way to test on multiple versions of the OS is to maintain a bunch of different installs of the OS and boot between them, how 1990's. And it not even like you can get away with just a 10.4 and a 10.5 install, there's enough differences between 10.5.0, 10.5.1, 10.5.2 and 10.5.3 that you'd really want to test on at least some of them.
