    It will only work for Intel based Macs.

    ok. the whole "bootcamp on g5" thing was a hoax. im just gullible..

    that really stinks. dammit. the only way to run windows on a g4 is virtual pc for mac, but thats slow as hell.

    Indeed - all other support for Microsoft OSs requires an Intel CPU.

    I remember the Virutal PC days. Trying to get it to run on my 400Mhz G3 iMac...

    i run virtual pc on ibook g4 with 800 mhz 640 ram, and the computer runs okay, but browsing the web is so insanely slow, and running a program is horrible, i even tried zoo tycoon. fortuneatly, i only spent 10 dollars on ebay for it, not the whopping 120 microsoft charges you. they dont even make it anymore.

    Virtual PC wasn't bad to run winmx (pre bittorrent file sharing) but games were garbage as it's emulated video card was rubbish. Oh well. New Mac Pro running XP 64-bit at ridiculously fast speeds, no complaints now. :D

    Time to upgrade or buy an Intel Mac, check used ones and refurbished, previous models have good prices.
    With my Intel MacBook I can run the fastest MacPlus ever, OS9 PowerPC, and all the Windows crap.

    Or one of the OpenComputer?macs recently announced...

    An even cheaper route may be to just buy or build a Windows PC. This is most likely the easiest option as well. A used PC with fair specs can be had for a song and a dance, also, there is no need to worry about setting up bootcamp or parallels. At least it would hold you over until your inevitable Intel Mac purchase :D

    btw, a lot of us have a pc lying around but it helps to have it in the next window, so you dont have to keep switching computers.

    (every single freaking media converter, ex. Super, only runs on a freaking PC, and the only one for mac is QT pro which costs money, and i always use the free option...) :):):):apple:
