post #1 of 2
Thread Starter

is there an emulator of somewhat of program i can use so i can be on mac os and have like a windows up so i can use it.

i tried boot camp. that works but i have to switch back and forth if i want to use mac os or windows. which is pointless to have a mac bc i work most of these program that only work on WINDOWS.

WINE is not an emulator, but it might be able to do the job for you. Look it up.

As to other alternatives, look up running a virtual machine - VirtualBox or VMWare are the popular ones.
