Thread: virtual pc... does it suck?

i'm currently planning my switch from pc to mac. i was wondering if anyone here had ever usued virtual pc 6.1 on a powerbook.
i realize that i'll experience a performance drop in virtual pc. i just have a few specialized programs (like dvd copy software and corel draw) that i need the windows operating system for.
i would just like to ensure
a) that virtual pc does, in fact, work... recognizing hardware and everything
b) that it's not going to screw up my computer or bog down the system resources when i'm not using it.

Virtual PC sucks. It's terrible. Keep the PC to do that work.

Yes, keep the PC if you have that option. I've used VPC myself and it works pretty well, despite the slow downs (using a PowerBook as well)
But if you can, keep the PC. Better to have both.
