With Microsoft buying Virtual PC, which lets Macs run Windows wares, Apple's independence may well rest with programs such as Bochs

I hope this actually happens. I would love to be able to just put a disc in, or double click an .exe and run the app, without having to bog down my system with a hefty emulator

You know, I have VPC... and the only programs I ever use on it... is kazaa.. theres a real reason why I went with macintosh after the DOS era. Even kazaa has alternatives that work fine. Other than that.. I really don't use it (case examples when I wana test a site or something), I actaully considered not updating to 6...

Honestly how many programs does PC have that mac doesnt have a better version of? My theory is if mac has it.. its better.

You know I think your right about Mac versions usually being better, but alot of times VPC is used for compatibility issues or when Mac versions don't exist. For example MS Access, Vizio, etc., specialized industry software, and such. In those cases, VPC becomes necessary.
