    Hello,

    I believe you are looking for Crossover Office for Mac, which can be found at www.codeweavers.com :)

    It is fairly unstable, I find it faster to reboot to Windows. :eek:

    Qemu is a really unstable and slow emultion software that allows you to run Windows (or any PC OS), so he would have to "actually use Windows" which is what he doesn't want to do.

    Crossover Office is Wine for Mac OS X. If you are familiar at all with Linux's Wine, then you'll see that they are one in the same.

    If the OP intends to use his G5 he will likely still need an emulator. perhaps the PPC version of Darwine?
