PVS for pega 8.x is available as there are courses for pega 8.x available via Pega Academy.
Pega Academy's PVS is designed to work with VMware clients on the Windows platform. It should work in a Mac environment using VMware Fusion, however, please note that we do not support this mode officially.
Please search the forum for past posting from other Mac users who have successfully got the PVS to run on the Mac. Tip: use the search and look for "pvs mac".
Pega Personal Edition is not supported on Mac OS and I do not have any information when it will be supported
