    Just curious what people are using M$ VPC for. I'm using it to run a dedicated CD thermal printer that does not have a Mac OS driver, otherwise I'd delete VPC from my system. And you?

    DOS games. Magic land, Fantasy world Dizzy... Wipeout (original from '94 or so), GTA:London... Theme hospital...

    Windows 2000 for Microsnot Visio for enterprise developers; better than Rational Rose, but don't ask me where I got it ;)
    I also sometimes test out .asp pages on the IIS webserver from in OS X. That's fun to set up...

    Back when I used VPC, I used it for...not much really. I tried playing a game called Castles of Adventure on it, but the sound was horrible and the game was so jumpy as to be almost unplayable. I also did TI-89 assembly development on it, using the Virtual TI emulator to test my programs. VTI is actually usable on VPC - it's one of the few programs I've found that runs at an acceptable speed.
