Sharepoint on Mac Part Duex: With Visual Studio and SQL Studio too!


Chris Poteet commented on our previous post covering Windows Sharepoint Services on the Mac with VMware Fusion, noting that he was doing something similar. 

I told him that if he wanted to blog it, we would point to his post too.

Turns out that Chris is using VMware Fusion to integrate Microsoft Office Sharepoint Services Enterprise Edition with SQL Server, while using Visual Studio 2008 and Powershell as his development environment, all within a Windows Server 2003 VM running on his MacBook Pro with VMware Fusion.  That’s definitely a geeky mouthful right there.  Just the way we like it.  You can read all about it here.

One of my favorite quotes:

After comparing Parallels and Fusion I decided to go with Fusion, and it was a good decision! With my MBP which has 4 GB RAM, 2.8 Ghz processor, and a 320 GB hard drive at 7200 RPM I run SharePoint faster than some dedicated Microsoft Server setups I’ve seen!
