Apple Following this week's five-year commitment to the Mac platform, Microsoft said it is working with Apple to bring Virtual PC to the new Intel-architecture, although it didn't provide details about the release date. The company, however, said that it would not run under Rosetta, Apple's emulation environment that allows older PowerPC programs to run on Intel-based Macs. The company said that it would wait on receipt of the new shipping machines to better evaluate Virtual PC for Intel-Macs as well the final release date of Mac Office and Messenger for Intel-Macs; however, the company this week said it has dropped all development of Windows Media Player for the Mac.

IE? Who cares? OS X has FF and Safari and a bunch of other browsers.

WMP? It blew on OS X... Flip4Mac is a much better WMV player.

Not entirely. I still can't go to sites such as and listen to the streaming radio feed of games using Flip4Mac. Do any WMV streams work with Flip4Mac?
