Microsoft Launches Virtual PC Software 

NewsFactor  -  Nov 10 3:30 PM
Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) has taken the wraps off its Virtual PC technology, which is designed to enhance interoperability and to help business customers bring along outdated applications when they upgrade to Windows XP systems. Yahoo! News
With the software, operating systems can run simultaneously on a PC, enabling tried and true legacy applications to continue on an interim basis while a company moves to XP. It supports all X86 operating systems, including Linux (news - web sites) -- but not on Mac machines, said Microsoft product manager Carla Huffman.

And then a week ago it was reported:
Microsoft Moves Virtual PC from Linux

Microsoft's forthcoming Virtual PC 2004 pulls away from Linux and other operating systems in favor of its own OS family. Ziff-Davis Yahoo! News

And still no G5 support.

If you can't beat them buy up a company and stop supporting the competition I guess. :rolleyes:
