    Windows applications now have direct access to all the memory in your 286- or 386- based PC--up to 16 MB!

    i had it running in a vmware session on my acer. it was quite nice. the install has really been dumbed down for out not so savvy users...


    not that XP install was hard in the first place. there really is no room for error present. the interface is a good deal like a mac, with all the extra widgets and such. it asks your permission for EVERYTHING though. click, click yes or no. sucks, but it learns your choices.

    i like it. ill have a copy when it comes out. thank you AccessTCA for another free toy.
