i need to buy virtual PC because we're writing a grant to the national institute of health and they just switched to a system that requires windows only. gotta love that.<br><br>so, rather than buy a PC, we're going to get virtual PC. however, i don't know why i'd get professional over home. can someone fill me in on the differences? TIA.<br><br>the virtual pc site at microsoft just says (for professional): <blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>he premier edition with the most robust communication, security and networking capabilities. This is the edition for businesses and advanced home users.<p><hr></blockquote><p>i am advanced home user, but . . . but, that doesn't help me. doh!<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
i just realized that i own version 5.0 of virtual pc so i can just upgrade . . . i think i had home edition as well.<br><br>now, it's about finding it. i hated it. hmmm.<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
i have my serial code. my problem is that i cannot find the previous install disks, including the windows home CD.<br><br>i remember when it stopped working on one of the os x upgrades. they finally forced people to upgrade to 6.0. i had only used 5.0 to fiddle with and had never needed it. so, i did some office rearranging and all that and misplaced it. now, this . . . the gov't is forcing it on me again. doh! <br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
Man VPC 5 and 6 in OS X were slooooooowwwwwwwwwww....I tried 7 and it still kind of sucked. I guess we all gotta do what we gotta do. <br><br>The beauty of the Intel Macs will be dual booting...then we'll never have to fuss with this nonsense again. <br><br>
yeah, i hated 5.0 so much i didn't mind losing the CDs. <br><br>i just bought professional because i heard the system has only been tested with professional. why the hell would the national institute of health switch to a system they've only tested on XP professional? stupid government.<br><br>i can't wait for the intel macs and being better able to fit in . . . in a pinch anyway.<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
