Okay, here's 'ol gordy's list:
OmniWeb (general, some shopping)
IE (banking, finance, shopping)
I know I forgot like the best one...
There is no reason to buy the full bversion of Virtual PC if you have a Windows Installation CD. The DOS version of virtual PC is around $60US. You can install Windows on top of this easily by typing e\setup at the DOS prompt.
[EDIT]Furthermore, I have no problems with Virtual PC. If you're running simple applications like Spreadsheets, databases, etc., it should work acceptably. Office, in particular, works fine in my iMac DV SE.

The users in the Apple Discussions forum did an extensive troubleshooting process, and couldn't tie anything down. I've had the problem on my iMac since the Public Beta. It's hardly an issue on my iBook, but it has hiccuped for a few seconds on occasion.
This is a very common bug. I'm not sure if it's only on 400MHz iMac DV's or not. Look at Apple's support forums for more information.
There is no fix/workaround, and I do not believe that Apple has acknowledged the bug even exists.

I'm not buying the damned thing tomorrow, I said 3 years from now. Are you telling me that there is no upgrade path for Blue & White G3's today? Upgrading is my number one reason for...
I don't care. I'll never buy another all-in-one not upgradeable Mac. My iMac served my well for about 2.5 years. Now it's being sold because I cannot upgrade the processor to keep up with new software. In the next few years, I can upgrade my G4 if necessary.
You have to think long-term. Yeah, they're probably comparable today, but this is an investment, not a beauty contest.
