Virtual PC is now owned by Micro$oft and is even 
bundled with a high-priced version of MS Office. It 
works pretty well on a fairly powerful computer, but 
(as with any OS emulation program)is fairly resource-
intensive (read as slow). It's OK for ocasional use, 
but if you need and depend on more than 2 or 3 
Windoze programs, then buy a cheap laptop-it's 
faster. The advantage of VPC is that you can 
seamlessly move documents, and even copy and paste 
from one OS to the other, share one set of 
peripherals, and shift back and forth at will.
