Open the Window, Mac

HOPKINTON

A subsidiary of Hopkinton-based data storage giant EMC Corp. has unveiled software that lets Macintosh machines run Microsoft Corp.'s Windows software side-by-side with Mac programs, Globe technology writer Hiawatha Bray reports in today's Business section.

VMware Inc., of Palo Alto, Calif., is demonstrating the software at Apple's annual developers conference in San Francisco.

VMware hasn't given the product a name, or decided on a price. But it plans to offer a beta version, available for downloading from the Internet, before year's end.
