    HEXUS.beans :: Windows Applications on your OSX machine?

    Young Master Fence has been wandering around and managed to get this juicy bean for all of you. How do you fancy running Windows Applications on your OSX enviroment? Say for example you have a copy of Microsoft Office for you Windows PC but you have just upgraded to a Mac, you may not fancy the re-investment in buying a new license. This new technology which we have heard about looks like it could solve this problem for all. Ironically the solution is closer than you think, and could be unleashed thanks to something which Mr Jobs directly invested in he has also been kind enough to enable all Macs to without doubt support.
    More on this bean within the hour, until then just enjoy the juices which are flowing freely.

    As far as I know...

    You can run Virtual PC on a MAC to load any windows based application...

    Well, not *any* but most of the software (apart from games)

    Guest PC is another one...
