I guess it serves some useful purpose, but I just had the opportunity to use Virtual PC 7, and I can report that it is still the computing equivalent of swimming in quicksand with a refrigerator strapped to your back. <br><br>Virtual PC 4 in OS 9 on an iMac with half the RAM and 1/4th of the processing power was snappier....<br><br>
If you're in a company environment and can justify a couple of grand (like only the equivalent of about ten copies of VPC anyway) set up a Windows 2000 or 2k3 server (yuk I know, but hear me out) and run MS Terminal Services on it. Then use the free download of the Microsoft Remote Desktop and you have a fully-functioned PC running at the full speed of the Windows server, slowed only by the bandwidth of your LAN. MUCH better and really usable - we have 30 concurrent connections and they all run at full speed. In fact, some older G4s say the PC runs faster than the mac that's hosting it!<br><br>Axel.<br><br>
