Virtual PC and G5

Went down to Magnum Mac today. Both to get out of the office for a moment, plus to have a look-see at the powerbooks. Unfortunately they didn’t have the newer Powerbooks on display, but I did get a chance to feel out the older models.

Anyway, I was also playing around with a large Dual G5 Powermac with a 30″ screen (very nice). Later I noted to a friend that on this machine Virtual PC had been very laggy. VirtualPC will probably be important to me, as I have a few business applications that need to run on a x86. Its unfortunate the Crossover Office is not OSX compatible. 😉

He pointed me to this: Virtual PC and the new G5.

    Thew new virtual PC (7) will support G5 perfectly.

    I should have checked the version, although you’d assume that in a retail Mac store they would be using the latest version. It definitely didn’t seem usable. It could have been the large screen. Maybe I’ve been spoilt by Win4Lin which actually runs faster than Win98 on the same hardware.
