This program does not work period! Maybe for others but not on my G5 2.5 gigahertz, It needs a lot of work!! I don't know why the programmers do not address this?

I cannot get a successful install of XP running on my G5 with this software. If I could find a place to get VPC 2007 I would. Program has crapped out on me at ALL stages of the XP install process - its not XP that hangs either. I have to force quit the app then restart the machine, because the window the VM is running in never goes away after a force quit. I have a G5 and for various reasons it would benefit me to have a copy of XP running (or vista or win7) on this box, but I cant get it to run with any kind of stability at all. I don't care how slow it is, just need it to work. Very disappointed. I have a Wintel box so please don't flame me about that. I like the PPC machines... call me a dinosaur if you will. Took me YEARS to upgrade past the 68k series macs.

Very slow on my G4, but that's to be expected. Successfully installed Win2000 and Ubuntu.

Surprisingly, VirtualPC 5 on a 1GHz G4 iBook noticably outperforms Q on a 2Ghz iMac G5 , both running a fresh instal of Windows 98 I didn't do any benchmarking. I'm going purely based on how fast it feels. Performance problems aside, it does exactly what it says. It does it easier than the other free PC emulation software, and hey it's free! I'd like to see performance optimizations for the Intel emulation on PowerPCs but the Qemu team is probably focusing on getting intel virtualization working now. A great overall product, it shows a lot of promise!

I have installed WinXP SP2 and I can't seems to get the wireless working on Windows. Any suggestion? Have I done anything wrong? I have set my router to DHCP, it works on my PowerBook.

While I was waiting to get VPC, I used Q. It's easy to set up, but it was slow. It was good for an emulation, but I wouldn't recommend this for everyday work use. Maybe just for that .doc file or a small DOS game. Maybe on the G5s and Intels it runs better, but on my G4, VPC is much faster.

What do I need to get this run from an XPSP2 CD? I can't seem to get it too boot.

Works almost as fast as VPC, except free. Supports most of the same features as VPC. The universal binary version supposedly runs way faster than VPC on Intel hardware... I suggest you all keep an eye on this project!
