|I need to test out some Web site programming on a Linux system and have determined that the Ubuntu distribution is ideal. My question: what's the best, easiest way to install Ubuntu Linux on my Mac system so I can run all my tests?
There are a number of different ways to install Ubuntu Linux on your Mac system, but one of my favorites, hands down, is to install it within the Parallels Desktop environment. Why? Because it's literally a one-click download to get it up and running. Now I realize that Parallels Desktop, like VMWare Fusion, is a commercial Mac application and has a price tag associated with it, but it sounds like this is related to your work and, well, sometimes you have to pay for your tools, right? The again, it's not that expensive at $79.
