I have a 1.8 iMac G5 with 1 gig of RAM.
I currently need Windows for a school-related app. I am running Virtual PC 7. Will Vista run on my specs?
Thank you.

back2mac: unless you like the idea of having a virtual Windows feel like it is running on a Pentium II 233 MHz, then avoid Vista. Avoid XP if you can, and get Windows 2000 from somewhere, as it is the best Windows that will at least feel usable on a PowerPC based machine. XP will do in a pinch, but it will feel sluggish.

If you're not going to be using this Windows-specific app constantly, then you can grin & put up with it.
