I install a copy of VPc on may machine.... a couple of months later I deleted it.
I found I had no real use for it. Fun to play with, but not a real "must have" program. If MS really wanted to scare Mac users they would buy Adobe. (though I suspect that wouldn't come cheap)

For those commenting on the power of OSX in influencing those PC biased IT managers, it is working... they are not yet ready for it, but they do take it very seriously. Many are already running Linux boxes for web-servers etc... in their Win based networks.
As someone already pointed out, this may be Apple's great strategy in increasing Market-share. (for those that are convinced you must dominate to be taken seriously).

It sounds like most of the people posting specs here are posting...
I am not a law expert so I will only pose a question for those more knowledgeble.
