 VT and Mac OS X

Forget windows, I want to run Mac OS X and Linux on the same machine at the same time. That would rock!

"First off I guess I should rewind for those who didn't read my old articles... and explain what "VT" is. VT is basically the current public name for Intel's Vanderpool and AMD's Pacifica technologies. It's a hardware level virtualization layer for x86/AMD64/emt64 processors. In essence this is like VMWare or VPC at the hardware level. Used in conjunction with Xen or VMware as a hypervisor most likely, you will be able to run several OS's straight from hardware simultaneously."
Why Apple & Intel & VT will kick ass.
