    I think he wants to use a Powermac G5 Quad to run windows using parallel. If you were talking about this then no it's not possible.

    EDIT: nevermind I was wrong.

    What i was talking about was one of the main features on the PowerMac G5's when the quads came out. everyone was saying you could buy tow of them and run them in parallel i wasnt sure if anyone did this or not?

    Only for the apps that you decide to write to take advantage of this, otherwise there are few load sharing apps available.

    If you just use the standard apps it would be a complete waste of time and $3500 -- it would end up one expensive server or paper weight..
