Description:: No hardcore Mac user will ever admit that Windows is better than OS X for anything, but denials aside, there are times when even the most loyal Mac user is forced to use a Windows only program....

Yes, and since Virtual PC was purchased by Microsoft it has become SO MUCH BETTER!

You joke, but it has. I like the current version of VPC so much better than the last Connectix version. Integrating the OS into VPC is extremely useful.

I didn't mind that MS bought VPC--they seemed (and still do) like the perfect company to do the best that could be done with it.

Plus it's comforting to some that MS OFFICIALLY sells and supports Windows for Mac.

sometimes i wish i had VPC, but don't have a reason to spend THAT much moeny on it. Make it 99.99 and i will buy, or make it MUCH faster, or give me a REAL reason to use it. do 1 or more of those and i think i will buy VPC. But until then, because you can't play games (well) on it, i don't have an official need use for windows. just the occasional random apps and stuff like that (i do want to see AIM triton, but not very important).
