Microsoft released Modern.IE, a set of tools to help you support modern and older versions of Internet Explorer. Along with that, they’ve also released updated Internet Explorer Virtual Machines. Avaiable are VM’s with IE7 (Vista), IE8 (Win7), IE9 (Win7) and IE10 (Win8). An IE6 (XP) is coming soon.
The PowerPC Emulator “PearPC” works like a charm! Installed Panther (OS X 10.3) today without any problems. Used the pre 0.4 Build merged with Altivec Branch, so that I could have G4 support (the non-Altivec branch only supports the more slow G3).
And yes, I do know that Tiger (10.4) is being released next week, but needed to test this asap.
All info you need on PearPC.Net (check their wiki, holds all info you need … way more in detail than the official site) + on their forums (to set up network connectivity)
Above that, the 0.4 build is being expected soon.
Also installed PC MACLAN today … it recognised all OS X shares (afp://servername) and printers without any troubles.
PS: yes, I know this is nerdy, but I needed all this for my on-the-job training, so I can test if a MySQL upgrade goes without any problems (PearPC) and connect to the G4 Fileservers (PC MACLAN).
