I run InfoQube on a Windows 10 VM under Parallels 13 and I’m glad I do!

How well does running MacOs in a VM under Windows 10 work for you? Also, what version of the MacOs are you running?

I’ve been tempted to do this myself, but I have been concerned about what performance would be like. I am currently using a 2011 MacBook Pro, which works fine for me, but given how Apple has gotten away from providing Pro versions of their laptops, I have been tempted to move to Windows 10 and run MacOs in a VM.

I realize that Apple is still making MacBook Pros, and their new Imac Pro and Mac Pro are looking pretty good, but it used to be that you could buy your MacBook Pro and then put in all the memory you want, and a nice, fast SSD. Apple has foreclosed the memory upgrade route, and I am not happy about buying my memory and SSD from Apple.

At any rate, I’d like to know what the performance is like for your Windows 10-McOs setup.

Actually, I’m running Windows 10 Pro in a VM using Parallels 13 on macOS 10.13.2.  This is a MacBook Pro with 16 GB memory.  I allocate 2 GB to the VM, Parallels takes another 0.5 GB for itself—so the footprint is 2.5 GB total.

It works well.  I’ve never had a Parallels crash.  I’ve had Windows 10 issues, but that’s par for the course and would have happened on Windows-specific hardware anyway.  A benefit of using a VM is that Parallels takes snapshots so whenever Windows crashes I merely revert to an instance of the VM prior to the crash.  (Normally the snapshot is within 6 hours of the crash at the most.)  I keep all my data in folders on the Mac side of the machine, so I never rely on the VM to store my data—just Windows and other software.

With any modern computer, the maximum working size is 2GB (using the current DB engine) and millions of items (up to 100M, depending on the actual content)
The key is to filter to limit the number of items shown in a grid. With the many built-in ways to filter, it is not really an issue.

IQ is quite efficient as far as data management. For example, my main DB is approx 40MB and includes everything from the last 10+ years!
