So. to recap, people have successfully run Xy under Virtual PC, but
that only works with the older, non-Intel Macs. Bootcamp and Parallels
let you emulate or run DOS or Windows as a virtual opsys on
Intel-based Macs. BUT has anyone actually run Xy under either of them?
(Lisa's original question.) After all, several people tried other
Windows/DOS emulators (e.g., DOSBox), and couldn't get Xy working.
How about Linux? Has anyone gotten Xy running under a Win/DOS emulator
there? It is highly unlikely that Xy will run under Vista (screen
access is already an issue under XP, and even W2K on newer hardware,
and Eye-Candy screens are, as far as I can see, the big "upgrade" in
Vista). (By the bye, I have heard that more than 50 percent of the PCs
in corporate America cannot run ANY version of Vista, and 90-something
percent cannot run the top-level version. Dare one hope that M$ may
finally get its comeuppance, even if from corporate bean-counters?
When thieves fall out...)
Virtual PC is irrelevant on the intel Macs. For them you can use Parallels.
