    I remember seeing a video that showcased a program that allowed you to run a windows program through mac without opening a virtual windows session.
    It gave you the ability to put windows apps in the dock and open them as if they are part of mac, and not having to go through a windows virtual machine.
    When i saw that video, i was running a ppc run powerbook, but now i have upgraded to the intel based powerbook, and this program would come in handy.
    Does anyone know the app that allowed this? thanks alot

    ... or Parallels. I'm using that because that's what the boss chose, but I'm intersted in CrossOver if it can run my fave Windows games....

    CrossOver is pretty limited in the number of applications it can run. I'd think that trying to run games with it would be mostly unsuccessful. Best to check http://www.codeweavers.com/products/ to see what apps crossover supports.
