    Ok, I use a 12" PowerBook G4 and run Tiger 10.4.8. I'm allergic to windows and dont ever want to return to it. The problem is my GIS class is taken delivery of a GIS software(ArcGIS) next week and we've got to run it for our finals. I dont want to run Windows side by side my Mac OS. Is there a way out? What can I do? Can I run it without installing Windows? Pls help me, you dont want me to fail my finals and pin it on Steve Job, do you. Merci.

    The old and slow VirtualPC is your only option... or getting a PC.

    If theres a linux version of the app you could dual boot your machine?
    I had my powerbook g4 dual ling fedora and X for a while, worked great, but i decided my hard drive was too small for both to run fully, so i got rid of it. Fairly simple also, just make sure you have your os disk.
    Oh, and make sure you back up youre information.
