Curious about how to run Windows, Linux or other versions of macOS on your new Apple Silicon Mac?

A lot has changed over the past two years for software that does this (in a process called virtualization (Wikipedia link).) The landscape for virtualization is very different than it is for Intel based Macs. Come learn about the different options you have with PMUG President Aric Pedersen.

After this presentation, you should be much more confident in the choices you have to run other OSes. Please join us.

The meeting will be held online through Zoom — members should check their e-mail for instructions on how to connect and attend. We hope you can join us.
