The number of Miami students who own Mac laptops is growing. Although the software available for Mac is pretty substantial, a Windows environment is still needed for some classes such as CSE141 (Personal Computer Applications) and CSE148 (Business Computing).
This is where virtualization comes in. By adding a piece of software called VMWare Fusion to your Mac, it can become a dual-threat -- able to run both Mac OS X and Windows operating systems. Because of this need, IT Services is offering a workshop called "Running Windows on a Mac with VMWare Fusion."
This workshop will walk students through the process of installing VMWare Fusion, Windows, and necessary Windows applications on their personal Mac laptop.
There are 16 sessions of the workshop scheduled between Jan. 11 and Jan. 21, and all will be held in Upham Hall room 361.
For more information about this workshop, and to register for a session, please visit the TRAIN registration system.
