    Hi,
    My office payroll/checkbook runs only on Windows. I see there is a Virtual PC 6 out, but I can get version 5 at a great price. Is there a difference??? I have a 15"PB running OSX. And I see on the front page of Mac Rumors that microsoft is coming out with an "emulator" that will run with the upcoming Mac OS. What's that all about. Any thoughts about how I should go. I'm in no rush, but it is a pain to have to run 2 computers. I'd like to get everything ported over to my mac.
    Thanks.

    Frank

    VPC 6 is a LOT faster than vpc 5. Definetly go with vpc 6. Microsoft bought the company that makes VPC, so that is there emulator, just vpc with what ever screwups microsoft plans to throw in there. Hope it helps a little bit. I run vpc 6 on my powerbook and its ok. I'm not one to promote stealing but you may want to jump on a p2p and see if it can meet your needs before you buy, cause it can still be painfully slow.
