    Project mention: macOS Ventura is now available | | 2022-10-24

  • quickemu

    Quickly create and run optimised Windows, macOS and Linux desktop virtual machines.

    Project mention: VMware Fusion 13 Now Available with Native Support for Apple Silicon Macs | | 2022-11-18

    RDP is really quite impressive. I host Windows VMs on a Linux server. With quickemu[0] you can fire up a Windows Vm in minutes. It fetches the ISO, sets everything up - even breezes through setup, creates a user, does KMS for activation, etc. One command and a few minutes later you're looking at a Windows desktop. Setup Remote Desktop (with SSH forwarding or VPN of course) and you have a remarkably responsive (even at 4k single and dual display) GUI experience and powerful remote connection - file sharing, sound forwarding, clipboard sharing, even printers and arbitrary devices.

    Instructions and script to help you create a VirtualBox VM running macOS.

    Project mention: Another script for creating macOS installer DMG or ISO disk images for virtualization | | 2022-03-11

    Although there's many other scripts and tutorials floating around the web that convert various macOS installer versions to ISO, I wrote yet another one that a) works on installers for Lion through Monterey, 2) produces reasonably sized disk images that work with VMware and VirtualBox, and iii) should be fairly understandable for people who aren't shell script experts, even if it's not as bulletproof as some other candidates:
