Need to run Windows on your Mac?

This week's Download Dispatch for Mac newsletter includes VirtualBox, Mactracker, and Turret Wars Retro.

Need to run Windows on your Mac? Check out VirtualBox, a free virtualization software that lets you run Windows or just about any operating system without the need to reboot. Handy wizards help you through the setup process so you can set up multiple environments to suit your needs. Note: you'll need the full version of the operating system you want to install in order to run it in the virtual environment.

Also this week we have the latest version of Mactracker, the comprehensive searchable database for almost every Mac product ever made. Our game this week is Turret Wars Retro, a turn-based strategy game where the mission is to carefully adjust your shots to take out enemy turrets.

Don't forget to check out our iPhone apps of the week!
