    Default Needing to run Windows Programs on my Mac... Anyone familiar with VMware Fusion?
    Hello,

    I am needing to run a windows program called Realhound for work and when I asked them if they support Mac they told me I would need to install something called VMware Fusion or Parallel on my Mac.

    I am not super excited about running windows on my Mac as I really like OS X, but I do not want to go buy a PC just because I cannot use this application I need for work.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for ways I can go about putting Windows on my Mac to run this Realhound program? I am looking to do this as cheaply as possible. I have not done a lot of modding on a Mac before except with Geektool for fun. I am familiar with iPhone's modding/jailbreaking/unlocking so maybe there is some overlap there...

    I have a 2011 Macbook Air 1.7 GHz Intel Core i5 4GB 1333 MHz DDR3 running Mac OS X 10.7.2 -- Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I need to get realhound up and running as soon as possible.

    Thanks!

    well - i figured it out... incase anyone stumbles upon this, i used VMware Fusion and it works great. Just DL an SO version of windows and install using virtual machine and it works great on a separate desktop, doesn't even use that much memory or CPU either...
