I'm hearing a few people talking about Virtual PC. So I looked it up and from what I can understand you have to have this to run XP on Mac. I was under the impression that when you buy Microsoft Office from the store, it will work no questions asked. And I'll be able to take files from my XP to Mac and Mac to XP. I'm I wrong?

Office is Office,...Windows is Windows

Virtual PC is Windows on a Mac,...(bad idea)

Office is a suite of applications for Mac and PC

You will need the Mac version of Office to run it on a Mac. However if you want to open word documents on a Mac then Appleworks can do that as well.

Let me try to make this a little clearer.

These are two products from Microsoft, VirtualPC and Office:mac 2004.

VirtualPC is an emulator that allows you to run Microsoft Windows, and any application that runs under Windows, on a PowerPC Mac. (Picture)

Office:mac is a version of Microsoft Office, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and a few other things, that is native on the mac. (Picture)
QUOTE Thanks
