San Francisco, Calif.-based OpenOSX on Thursday announced that
is now available. The newest version of the developer’s utility for running Microsoft Windows 95, 98, 2000, NT 4.0 and XP Professional in Mac OS X has been updated with three improvements: a Power Mac G4 fix for computers not using G4-optimized binaries, resolution of a potential problem with creating WinTel Disk Images larger than 1GB and a better installation process.
WinTel offers limited support for Network Interface Cards (NIC), Sound Blaster-compatible sound cards, USB and 32-bit color SVGA video. Users can employ the Finder to copy files between the emulated Windows environment and Mac OS X as well as mount CDs in Windows. Version 1.2.2 is a free upgrade for version 1.2 owners; the full software is US$30 on CD-ROM or $25 as a download from the OpenOSX Web site. Mac OS X v10.2 and a G4 processor running at 600MHz are required.
