Re: [wpmac] Old WP user switching to Mac
I have WPMac running under Sheepshaver on a MBP (10.6). I also have it
running on an Air under Lion (10.7). Equally, I have WPWin (X5) running
under Parallels (Windows 7) on both. Very different programmes, but both
undoubtedly WP. I am assuming you have a legacy of WP files created in
Windows before you moved to the MBP? If so, go with Parallels and WPWin.
