    I've tried installing this on my 2010 MBP, after many hours and finally getting it to work, it really wasn't worth it. The best method I've found is to install a fresh load of OS X, then install your favorite VM host, I personally like VMware Fusion and I can move my VMs between my ESX server and my MBP. With it installed as a guest, I've found all of the trackpad gestures and features work perfectly well.

    But if you run it from a virtual machine don't you have to buy an adapter for it to see the wireless?
