Mac: Parralels, VMWare
Windows: VMWare, VirtualBox
Linux: VMWare, VirtualBox

All do the same thing. Let you run another OS in a little virtual
computer. If you run the thing in "fullscreen" mode, you often can't
tell that the OS is not running natively.

IMO, since Apple moved to Intel x86 platform, it has become the
"killer" platform. You can run any x86 OS (with some caveats) on Apple
hardware, and the Apple hardware is really about as nice as PC
hardware gets. You cannot, however, run Mac OS X on non-Apple

For me, though, I am not a Mac fan, and am a Linux user -- I don't
have any reason to shell out the extra dough just to get Apple

Anyway, I went off topic again, shoot, sorry. Later...
