The Irony Zone

Craig Burton finds it ironic that I installed Virtual PC on my new Mac. “Virtual PC is a cool product as it lets you run Windows on your Mac,” he says. “Here is the irony. It comes with Windows. To run Virutal PC, you must install Windows on your Mac. Virtual PC is not a “Windows” emulator, it is a “PC” emulator.”

Here’s the real irony. Virtual PC doesn’t come with Windows. It’s a PC emulator that comes with PC DOS, not MS-DOS and definitely not Windows.

I installed it, and then installed an older Windows that came with a PC I no longer use. Microsoft didn’t get a nickel in this transaction. Maybe that’s re-direction….
