That bit of OS X software that lets you run Windoze apps? Unfortunately I have to run a Window$ app for a few days and I'm trying to avoid dusting off my old, old PC...

Yup. Works fine for me even if a bit slow.

What I like best about it is that I can boot Windows when I need to test something, and then take great joy in making it go away!

I've used it and it worked fine, felt a tad slow to me too.

Because I was going back and forth between Mac and one Windows app it felt kind of clumsy, especially because of the different keyboard layouts. Because of that I eventually gave up on that one app (too lazy to delve into changing the keyboard mapping). I did manage to keep all my files and data on the Mac side pretty easily using Windows Sharing in System Preferences.
