While many don’t care what kind of chip is inside a Mac, others wonder what it will take to boot Windows on an Intel Mac. TechWorld has found an interesting intermediate argument, predicting that the big winner will be Windows-emulation products such as VirtualPC. They should allow Windows apps to run at native PC speeds on the new Macs since code translation will no longer be necessary. While only a few geeks like me want both a Mac and a PC on their desks, more may benefit from the ability to run Windows apps on their Macs. I figure that this will be a great opportunity to run Windows apps while eschewing the Windows OS! We will have to see how well the next generation of Windows emulators integrates with the Mac OS.
Windows Apps, Not Windows OS
