microsoftMicrosoft have finally shipped Virtual PC 7 after 20 months of holding the thing hostage from Mac enthusiasts dying to run PC apps on their 64-bit G5s.  The new version makes use of the 64-bit G5 hardware environment and comes with a Windows XP Professional license.  Other versions are expected over the next few months with Windows XP Home Edition and another without an OS at all for those who have, shall we say, other sources for their Operating System Of Choice.  The guys in Redmond promise 10- to 30-percent speed increases over previous versions.  Will it run Doom 3, though?  While we doubt it, we'd like to know for sure.  Be the first to report back here.
