For those who own, or are thinking of purchasing, a Mac Intel computer:

Mac with Intel chip

...I have some great news!

There are now two ways to run Windows on a Mac Intel...

1. Use Boot Camp, to boot natively in either Windows XP or Mac OS X


2. Use new emulation software that runs 90 per cent as fast as a  
native computer...superior to Virtual PC...It is called Parallels  
Desktop for Mac:

and for only $79.99, you can run Linux, DOS, FreeBSD, OS/2 and OS X  
plus any form of Windows, including Windows 95, and Windows 98....

So for those who love SignWriter DOS (sheepish grin) you can run it  
on a Mac Intel easier than on a Windows XP computer!

I believe that in time, on the Mac Intel, the computer operating  
systems will blend to become one great big multi-operational computer!
