I really don't understand how running inside Virtual PC can be considered as running "native" in OS X. Doesn't sound native to me..

    No, Native = running on Mac OS X.

    Using Virtual PC is just a step in the process.

    There is no CFMX package that will install on Native Mac OS X.

    So we install the Linux version somewhere -- either a real pc or a emulated pc.

    The installed Linux version is then ported to Native Mac OS X.

    I figured that VPC was more accessible to a Mac user than a real pc -- but you could use either.
