Help My Clients
Authored by: WhiteDog on Apr 16, '06 04:03:16PM

I won't be buying a new Mac any sooner, but I have clients who are getting new Macs and many of them will find it very useful to be able to use Windows as well as OS X, particularly those who are switching. Even though some of them are changing over to get away from Windows' problems, they still have Windows only applications they need to use occasionally.

Though I won't be buying a new Mac (until I can afford it) I look forward to being able to use Windows natively when I do. I specialize in Mac tech support but people still ask me to help them with Windows problems from time to time. Right now I use Virtual PC but it is dog slow on my dual 1GHz G4. A decent virtualization engine in OS X would also be useful. Hopefully, by the time I get an Intel Mac, Parallels will be ready for prime time - since, at the moment, the developers seem to be whipping Microsoft's posterior. If nothing else, they should force MS to fish or cut bait with Virtual PC.

Don't anthropomorphize computers.
They hate that.
