Assuming you're using VMware Fusion? Sure, you can have as many VMs as your host can support, resource-wise....and of course if you have the Windows OS licenses for the OS's you install.

As you are using VMware Fusion, you can install as many VMs as you like.

It's dependant on how much CPU, RAM and storage you have as too whether you can run them all concurrently.

@modguy: It happens *ALL* the time, I just get on an answer the next question!

"We strongly recommend to the experts to just let these things go as they tend to even out over time and, quite frankly, neither you nore I have the time to handle this monkey business."

Wow.  How old are you guys?  I think I will just stick to what I did.  Similar answers, but I just chose the answer that had the most pertinent information to me.

Thanks for the clarification @mkramer777. I personally don't see the difference in responses, but if you do, that's what matters. As mentioned by @modguy..it's your question :)  I do tend to ignore these 'incidences' at times, as well. And @honccocka knows that. But, for this one I chose not to and inquire as to why my answer wasn't chosen.

As Experts, we freely (literally) give our time to help posters and by doing so, giving correct responses and seeing posters appreciate our answers is our reward. EE goes one step further and grants the ability of posters to reward the Experts for their time in answering questions by getting points. No matter what Expert says, that is a fun thing to receive as well. :) My apologies for any disgruntledness incurred by my "request/inquiry"...certainly not my intention.

We look forward to assisting any further questions you might have. :)

Regards,
