: Ok, I thought you were saying running FreeBSD under VMware doesn't work
: very well. I know for a fact that is not the case. I also wasn't sure
: what you meant by "pita for file sharing" as NFS certainly works in
: FreeBSD on the VM. I know MS-Windows under VMware Workstation and MacOS

: FreeBSD has that functionality also.
FreeBSD inside a VM on the mac is a bit of a pita to get all the file
sharing stuff right. the pita is on the mac side, for the most part,
but smbfs on FreeBSD is so slow that it isn't useful for anything but
the most trivial of file sharing.
Requiring a VM to build freebsd on a foreign host is a good stop-gap,
but not a good long term plan.
