and even called the PAF people begging them to release a PPC version.

The new G3 and G4 Macs (including Imac) equipped with enough memory can run a
Window emulator (software) that will allow you to run almost any Windows
program. There are also "PC" cards (hardware) that can be installed that will
do the same thing. My son has a large Mac and runs both systems with no major
