    Hello iMore,

    My question is does anyone here run Linux on a Virtual Machine (VMWare / Parallels) if so which is your favorite distribution?

    I personally always install the latest version of Ubuntu on my Parallels VM, just fun to poke around the OS.

    I did early on, but I don't dabble into other OSes like I use to. I'm content with the OS X being the only OS on my machine.

    I'll run windows as a VM on mine, but most of my Linux stuff is done via terminal and SSH, so there's no need for me to have it native.

    I bought a Mac so I could have OS X, not so I could run other OS's. So, no.

    I had Windows and I scrapped it and put Cinnamon Mint Linux, on my system. Been running faster since. Then again I don't have to run a bunch of security programs in the back ground. But Mac is pretty reliable in my opinion. Unless you just want to play around with Linux, which is fun to try something new every now and then, I don't see the need for you to be on Linux. That is until your computer gets older and doesn't run smooth as when you first bought it. Linux is cool cause you can have the latest OS for free. And the terminal is fun for me.

    Run Linux in VMWare on your Mac just fine.
