Crash Windows More Efficiently, Try VirtualPC

July 11, 2002

I use Connectix’s VirtualPC 5 to test websites and run some of my Window’s-only programs. Their update to 5.0.3 was so buggy, that the support message board was flooded. If you had a shared folder on your mac and then tried to access it under windows, your whole computer would freeze up and you would have to reboot via the reset button.

The 5.0.4 update isn’t fairing much better with me. I’m almost at that point where, you just want to chuck the whole thing and use a cheap PC to do the same thing.

What are p166 PC’s, like $30 now? I have my recently retired system, that I might resort to if they can’t get it fixed
