#114: Easy Mac Emulator for GPA teachers
    Reporter:  CarolineM   |          Owner:  marcopg    
        Type:  defect      |         Status:  new        
    Priority:  blocker     |      Milestone:             
   Component:  SoaS        |        Version:             
    Severity:  Blocker     |     Resolution:             
    Keywords:              |   Distribution:  Unspecified
Status_field:  Unconfimed  |  
Changes (by wadeb):

  * distribution:  => Unspecified
  * severity:  => Blocker
  * status_field:  => Unconfimed


 Focusing on the emulator discussion (which means Intel only atm), I think
 we need to standardize on a *single* supported emulator and package ready-
 to-go SoaS images.

 It should not be VirtualBox or QEMU.  QEMU has almost no Mac support, and
 VirtualBox is very limited:

 That leaves VMWare as the only workable emulator solution that covers Mac,
 Windows and Linux.  VMWare offers free tools for creating standalone VM

 So, can we agree to standardize our emulator efforts on VMWare?
