I am researching into the Mac Pro as my next PC (purpose is software dev with virtual test labs etc).
I am thinking of running ESX on such a box. Is it possible to scrap the OS and deploy just the hypervisor? A colleague in my company says he runs VMWare Fusion on a Mac (not sure if it is the Pro), and then ESX within that, which holds the VMs he can RDP to. How well would this approach work? The immediate thing is that this approach has so many layers so ESX is talking to VMWare Fusion and not the hardware layer directly - am I correct? What would the ideal approach be?
