(oof) Gets a bit cramped here in the woodwork...
Anyhow, I'd been running S&T 2010 on a Windows XP virtual machine (via VMWare Fusion) on my Mac mini with no issues... didn't use S&T often enough to justify an upgrade to a newer version yet.
With Microsoft poised to pull the plug on XP a year from now and their big push to foist the boondoggle that is Windows 8 on the masses, I figure I'd better hop to it and grab a copy of Windows 7 Pro before it's too late.
I figured that my Mac mini should be up to the task of running a Windows 7 virtual machine - after all, I have four GIGABYTES of RAM in it, right? Well, I have to admit that I had to pick up my jaw from the floor when I fired up the activity monitor to see the free RAM count had dropped down to about 12 megabytes
The machine (not the virtual PC, the WHOLE Mac) even freezes solid for the first 10-20 seconds after logging into the virtual Windows installation.
So... just wanted to a bit and then to see what other options there would be for Mac users (BESIDES RouteBuddy which is still as useless as ever).
Crossover Mac is out as an option because it ALWAYS chokes on the text to speech feature portion of S&T during the creation of a "bottle".
(I STILL THINK S&T SHOULD BE PORTED TO THE MAC PLATFORM)
