does anyone have any experience with ms virtual pc for mac? i am trying to figure out if i should get it (to run school aps) or just go and buy a pc. i would rather have just one machine if the software and a large dose of ram will do.
It really depends on your situation -- what exactly you want to run on it, and what your performance requirements are. Virtual PC is a means to an end if you must run Windows software, but it's not an optimal solution. As you noted, it's a memory hog -- and even with plenty of RAM, it's still going to be slow. How noticeable that is depends on what you're running.
Which Mac do you have, and how much RAM are you thinking of? What type of Windows software are you thinking about running with it? [ February 13, 2006: Message edited by: marc weber ]

I have an iBook G4 with 256 installed and was thinking of adding a gig to that. I am just trying to stream-line the learning curve since it is all new to me. I was also contemplating the thought of programming in a Unix environment but they maybe a bit much. Thanks for the reply.
