Subject: Re: FLASH: OT Virtual PC on a G4?

Slower than? VPC is not a good solution for graphics/3d/music software
(processor and/or video card intensive) out of the box (you can improve
graphics for instance, by installing a PC gphx card w/drivers).
However, for non-processor intensive PC apps. it works fine, great for
testing as you can run several disk images (with various browser/plug
combos) on one Mac. If you are wanting to use 3d (or other
processor/video/ram intensive) software on Virtual PC, however, I would
suggest one less G4 and getting a PC to run the PC only stuff.
