Mac to Emulate Windows Faster Than Native PC?
Jaggon writes "oscast is running an interesting story which claims that sources close to Apple told them that the company had intended to show the speed of upcoming hardware by emulating Windows faster than a native PC is able to run Windows. It was then, (according to the article) that Microsoft suddenly acquired Connectix' Virtual PC software. The editorial implies that Apple may have a plan "B" strategy with FWB's recent announcement that they will have an updated version of their "RealPC" emulation software in the next 30 days. (That statement from FWB was apparently made about a week or so ago... so that may make it closer to 23 days.)"
