PC Compatibility cards - Mac Applications & Software

Will they work in current New Worlds or under the classic mode of OSX? They are far faster and superior to Virtual PC, they thus cost a lot more. What do you expect?...

    I can't answer that because I haven't tried. However:
     

    "Superior" is subjective and I have no idea on what you're basing that,
    but as for "faster," what is the fastest processor that was ever used on
    one of those cards? Can you truly claim, without having tried, that
    it's faster than running VPC on a recent G4?
     

    First, comparing prices doesn't make a lot of sense when one item is
    hardware and the other is software. Second, correct me if I'm wrong,
    but I don't recall any company having sold any PC Compatibility cards
    for quite a few years, so all you can go by for costs now is the going
    rate on eBay.

    You did not answer my original question.

    Will they work on a new G4 with OSX?

    I will not make inacurate comparisons. I compare the VPC of 1999 to the last PC
    Compatibility card made that year I believe.

    What part of that was unclear?

    It is possible to use a PC on a Mac with Remote Desktop Connection, RDC.
    A free download from Microsoft which also runs on MacOS X. You will,
    however, have to run a multitasking and multi-user system like Windows
    NT or [new, cheap] Windos XP Pro [at least I use Pro, I'm not sure with
    Home].

    Connect the two computers through hub or switch and insert the PC's
    IP-address in a RDC field, and it works, especially if you have a fast
    ethernet connection [I use 100 Mb/s since the PC has got such a card, my
    G4/867 has a 1 Gb/s card and I use two 10/100 Mb/s switches to the
    connection].

    But VPC is quite OK on a G4/867. You'll just have to use a proper
    Windows OS. Don't use Windows 98, it's slow. Use Windows 2000, it's
    fast.
