As i said, i have NOT tried this as i don't have an Intel based mac. I HAVE seen screenshots of Parallels running DOS. For me this would at least give me enough confidence to demo Parallels, install DOS and put Xy on it, with some degree of confidence.

For most people, IMO, the M$ Windows experience is THE experience when ever anyone uses a computer. Having to jump through hoops for Vista, whether that is a new computer, monitor, etc., regardless of what I or others may say that there are other alternatives, is just the cost of THE computer experience.
