According to this MS is still putzing around with code... Damn, I was really hoping to get my hands on Virtual PC 7 with the Office 2004 updgrade. Oh well...<br><br>

I wonder if it'll run on a G5 and if it does, how well will it run?<br><br>

Running on a G5 is one of the primary features of version 7, but as you say, how WELL it will run remains to be seen. Connectix always used to claim how fast it was (in relative terms as an emulator), but I always found it to be barely useable for anything but web browsing. However, that's my primary reason for wanting it... to check web sites I build using a Windows OS.<br><br>I'm going to wait on upgrading my copy of Office until they get VirtualPC 7 finished so I can get it all at once.<br><br>

i have a bad feeling about this. i felt more confident about Virtual PC when it was done by Connectix.<br><br>

Did you see that they claim native support for the video card? <br><br>I'll believe that when I see it, but if true, it will be worth paying for.<br><br>
