"Emulation software developer Connectix is to ship a version of its Mac-based Virtual PC application with Red Hat Linux as the emulator's bundled x86 operating systems."
"...using Virtual PC to support legacy Windows apps on a Mac or software that is only available on Windows and not under the MacOS, makes some sense, but when a version Red Hat Linux is already available for the Mac in the form of LinuxPPC, this week upgraded to LinuxPPC 2000, there seems little point in emulating the OS."
"Still, for those who want to try out the open source OS, Virtual PC does at least allow you to do so without repartitioning your hard drive, and switch between the two without rebooting."
