SCOUG OS/2 For You - March 1998
If You Missed the Feb Meeting...
You Missed Seeing OS/2
Running on a Mac
SCOUG members were wowed when they saw their favorite operating system being run on a MacIntosh Power PC at the last general meeting. We all watched as Mark Abramowitz used Virtual PC to install OS/2, recognize the virtualized PC flawlessly, and perform reasonably well.
A number of apps were demonstrated as operating nicely under Virtual PC on a Mac Power PC, including Impos/2, ColorWorks, Relish (which was able to signal us when OS/2 was minimized and we were on the Mac side!), Mesa/2, and even a few Windows apps in Win-OS/2.
Mark has promised to document the process he went through. Thus, more detailed information will be featured in next month's newsletter, including a description of a problem with a bug resulting in an inoperative floppy drive.
