Exbal!!! The stars finally align!

I have had to jump through hoops to get Exbal boiling in the pot. See we have nothing but Apple Macs in our home! After getting a Kestral, pda (windows), Exbal for pc and ppc (windows) I was faced with investing even more in a used Windows laptop or the such.
Well I came across a piece of software at Apple today that was a snap to install and allows me to run Windows XP within the Mac simultaneously in its own window without having to reboot at all. I was able to install Activesync, Exbal and the pda software in Windows like I knew what I was doing while my mac Leopard cruised along in the background real ho hum. I am freakin overjoyed.
All I gotta do now is learn how to shoot!

Btw the program is called VMWARE FUSION2

Hey 7 pred

I've been using Parallels on the Mac for several years.

It's kind of sad to have turn a Mac into a PC but it runs PC software better than the PC does.

Good Find!!!!!

You're exactly right. I didn't want to offend anyone by saying putting windows in my mac was downright sacrilege! So I won't
