it was kinda cool to have IE running on my wireless network but the novelty quickly wore off and i started to miss osx.... lol dualbooting is a great option though :p

what i care about more is probably running the second partition insome software inside osx... i dont fancy rebooting just to dosome checking if things work in IE or doing some work in VS2005

Well, I have successfully installed and run Windows 2000 in qemu on my Mac, take a look (universal binary goodness) :)

There's no point... it wouldn't work. WindowsXP can only run on an x86 processor.

looks like someone made some progress for the video drivers...that would be awesome, i have to admit the emulator support is lacking a bit on the OSX side (SNES9X works GREAT but no PSX emulators :()
