They can pry my G4 from my cold, dead hands

[ #16717 ]

My employer is replacing a bunch of Macs because of an important new Windows-only piece of software. Apparently, they didn't bother testing it using Virtual PC (if they thought of that at all) and now it's too late.

As I said, they can pry my G4 from my cold, dead hands.

Ahem.

Fortunately, they won't have to; I've been allowed to keep it. I'll be using Virtual PC, which I've heard (from people at other sites using the software in question) does indeed work just fine. Sadly, all the other Macs in my office will be replaced.

The funny thing is, my employer's policy is that a "replaced" computer can actually be kept on an unsupported basis. Picture a bunch of new Wintel boxes gathering dust in the corner...

:-)
