A solution to dualbooting?


Hi,
Iíve been dualbooting for a while as I mainly use apps on Mac OS but prefer gaming on Windows, Steam etc
I saw a new OS called Verenitti and it looks pretty and integrated for Windows and Mac/Linux, an all in one. I saw it at https://www.verenittios.com
What do you guys think? I am considering dumping the dual booting option and trying this as I hate restarting everythingon a whim.

Verenitti uses its own internal virtualisation to run non-native applications, from Windows, Apple and Linux
I would say you can try it and also you can tell us your experiences, but I'm not really sure it will really work as you expect.

Looks like a virtual machine hypervisor. I don't like the way it's presented. The boasting: "The last operating system you will ever need", “The world is about to change.”. The marketing bullshit: "An operating system for both techs and consumers, that was built for the individual not the shareholder, with a real focus on performance and compatibility". Turns me off.

And I haven't found a description of the technology on that website, although it's supposed to be open-source.

Consider existing mature technologies like Xen or Vmware ESXi or one of the several type 2 hypervisors. Not sure how compatible they are with MacOS, which Verenitti seems to support.

"Soon on Kickstarter". Be a while before we see anything meaningful methinks.

Vapourware for now.

What do you guys think? I am considering dumping the dual booting option and trying this as I hate restarting everythingon a whim.
Hi, Pure, so I registered just to answer as this, as it is actually very interesting. After Reading I asked around a bit and apparently some exBSD coders know the group that are building Verenitti. Take this with a pinch of salt as I can't verify the info but seems the group is known. Some ex-SunOS coders from the solaris early days, peering architects, some IETF guys etc ... So they know what they are doing ... probably.

However .... I kind of agree with the above posts in both counts. Although the website states Alpha I think you will be waiting 1-2 years for it to be properly released. So a long wait. And although the group seem viable, and apparently are the originators of IoT, 3GPP and other technologies, you can never tell if they will be successful, most flop. And it looks way too good to be true tbh. Every techs wet dream. It looks to me like a one-stop useable Unix and eh .... if they pull that off then not sure they would need kickstarter at all. Plus, as above, way too much marketing wording.

So I would look at other options depending on your technical capability. ESX is a piece of dog turd mostly I use it at work.
Most virtualisation cannot compete with native, except for, funny enough, Parallels. 14 is damn fast and games quicker or at the same speed as native in many games.
If you can give a little more info on your use cases I can get back to you.

And also I had no idea Verenitti existed, and although it might be vapourware, I appreciate the post.
A piece of advice is also post on the BSD forums. They tend to be very willing on these subjects. And MS is going for Linux licences in a big way now so not sure how long the distros will survive without selling out, if you want a long term solution.

Welcome Pipui - thanks for the info. I keep an eye on various alternate kernel projects and they all start out with enthusiasm, and slowly atrophy to a (small) core group of devs that struggle to keep it going in a world addicted to instant gratification. Haiku is a good example.

I have grown (more) jaundiced in outlook over the years.
