Virtual PC

By PokerJohn ·
I've posted here that I use a Mac. I need to have Act or some
other contact management application. My boss is suggesting
Virtual PC.

Any thoughts? BTW, getting rid of the Mac is not an option.

Go with it.

by DC_GUY In reply to Virtual PC

Unfortunately I only get to use a Mac at home and am stuck with a Windows machine at the office, so I've had no reason to install VirtualPC. But the reports I hear from the Mac community via my wife, who is more active in it than I am, is that VirtualPC has evolved to the point that it lives up to its name.

The initial release was pretty easy to overload if you tried anything except a straightforward MIS application. I believe the latest release will run practically anything satisfactorily except real-time CPU hogs like videogames and musical instruments.

I assume you are a serious player with a G5 that's got max everything, unlike myself with my hand-me-down G4 PowerBook.

Which Mac?

by zenistar In reply to Virtual PC

Depending on the type of Mac you have, I would say go for it.

The latest virtual PC runs very well on both my G5 and Powerbook though it can be sluggish on older machines.

This is the first time I've used a Mac. About the only thing I
don't like is the lack of compatibility.
