Re: [wpmac] Run WP 9.0 on MacBook?
- There is software I need to run that updates itself,
like my AV and spyware software, as well as a photo
management program that I sell as a consultant.
Windows registration must be done online as well. So
I think I'm stuck.
It's fascinating to have Windows crash while Tiger
purrs along smoothly!

- I run WP office version 12 on a Macbook using Vmware's Fusion. Fusion
has a Unity mode that allows PC programs to run from the dock, and in
windows side by side with MAC programs. You can also cut and paste
across the two platforms, so it is like there is only one machine. I
have Windows XP running on the virtual machine. I keep all
my "changeable files" on the MAC so if Windows get corrupted, or
attacked by a virus, I can just reload a copy of the virtual machine
and never miss a beat. Fusion has a snapshot feature for this, and now
time machine supports backing up virtual machines. I wish Corel would
get a current MAC version of WP, but this will have to do for now.
