    The technical answer is yes. Virtual PC allows for the Windows OS to be emulated on PPC macs. You would need your own copy of Windows. I have no idea what sort of performance you could expect from Office 2007. Windows XP ran somewhat slow on my G5 imac. Usable for certain tasks (word processing, spreadsheets, email) but not others (games, video, et al). I used Office 2003 and it worked ok. I do not know if Virtual PC will run Vista. If it does, I expect the performance would be poor though.

    Actually a little research shows that Vista will run in Virtual PC, even worse than XP, but it still runs. :D
