* Running the Gold edition on a Mac computer:
At the moment we do not have plans to move the Gold edition to the Mac platform. But we have a lot of folks running the Gold edition on their Mac computers now. They use a Windows emulation program to partition their hard drive and then they install Windows on that partitioned section. It is just like having a Windows computer and a Mac computer. Then you can run any software designed for Windows. See the FAQ/Knowledgebase Article on this topic.
Well-known and respected Windows emulation programs include VMware Fusion and Parallels Desktop. We recommend either of these.
