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.

      Here's a URL that shows an image of the CFMX administrator -- careful examination will show that it is, in fact, running on Native Mac OS X.

        Nice! :)

        I hope the 3rd part of this article appears soon. :) Now I only need Oracle on OSX and I can start using my Mac at work. Now that would be nice! :)
