Will any parallels-esque software, on 10.6.3, let me run Java 7?

It should. With Parallels, VMWare Fusion or VirtualBox, once you start up the virtual machine it is that operating system. So anything you can do on Windows you can do in a Windows virtual machine, same with Linux or other operating systems running as a virtual machine. Each with their own set of software.

Thanks Mark,

Of the three that you mentioned, do you have any preferences or war stories or pros & cons?

I am not Mark but I can share some experience.
I use VirtualBox with Snow Leopard. On it I have created three VMs, Ubuntu 10.10, Ubuntu 11.04 and Windoze XP. Its quite easy to configure and run.

I personally have used Virtual Box and VMWare Fusion and prefer VMWare Fusion because they have a lot of virtual machine images ready to go at a click to download. So I don't have to run installers to install any flavor of Linux. I still have to install Windows with any of the VM software out there.

Other neat thing is that now that VMWare has introduced the Micro Cloud Foundry, I can create my own private Cloud by just downloading the VM Image that they have on their website.
