Hy to everybody,
I need to run PC programs on my new iMac G5. Does anyone now the difference between Virtual PC 7 and BOCHS? Where can I find some tests on both?
Thanks,
Branislav

Virtual PC will be many times faster than BOCHS.

I also just upgraded to an iMac-G5 1.8GHz machine with 1GB RAM. I have VPC 6 running on my Powerbook G5 1.33GHz with 768MB. I usually allocate half of my memory to VPC, so it's currently running with 384MB.

Would anyone be able to tell me how much of a performance boost I'm going to get from VPC7 on my iMac versus what I have on my Powerbook? I'd like to run VS.NET on my iMac (for work reasons ONLY!!), but it's such a resource hog I'm not even sure my iMac G5 could run it through VPC7. And, I'd hate to spend $129 on VPC only to find out it's still too dang slow.

Thanks
Curt

Curt, I believe VPC7 is optimised for the G5, so I'd imagine it would be a wee bit faster.
