Virtual PC FREE

Recommended Posts

It somewhat allows for similiar scenarios, but is more useful.

You run your regular OS, but then you can fire up virtual instances of OS's inside of virtual PC.

So, you could have your install of WinXP up and running, and fire up a copy of Windows 98, or DOS, for gaming with older games.

In the past, I have always used it for development; you can have a whole dev environment running on a single pc (database server, web server, etc.)

Oh ya, make sure you have plenty of RAM. Each 'guest' OS you fire up will take away from your available memory.

...it also appears that only the windows version is free as I see no mention on any of the linked pages regarding the original Mac OS version...

(Yet another good mac company sucked into the blackhole that is M$... Bungie being the other major one, which was worse as Bungie was the ONLY good mac primary game developer... sometimes Apple can be really stupid... Halo was designed as a mac game, not an xbox game, and certainly not a windows games...)
