I've tried Virtual PC 6 on my 1ghz iMac and I find that the Windows XP environment to be very slow. Moving the cursor around seems to be fine, but doing anything but that tends to slow the system down.

Keep in mind also that Virtual PC not only emulates the OS, but it also emulates the hardware as well. These two factors contribute to the slowness.

My advice: I wouldn't rely on Virtual PC for programs that you absolutly have to use. if you want to use it for P2P programs, then you'll get by with it, but any thing else where you have to do some work forget it.
