Wouldn't a virus only affect the partition that contained the XP operating system? Or, once in, could it jump to the mac OS and trash the whole computer?

Well, one advantage it does offer is that you don't have to buy 2 seperate systems now. As you're all aware, no HI software in Mac exists, so the only option for Mac users is to buy another computer just for the HI software.

I thought that Dave Surette had a reporting system that work on macs.

That's one of the unknowns. What you said makes perfect sense, though.

Well, yes it does. Filemaker Pro, the best bargain software there is.

I run my whole business, including reports, w/FM Pro.

Kurt - can you provide me with more info on Filemaker Pro. I've never used it - haven't had a reason to so far. I'm new to HI and have been looking or something mac based. Was thinking about buying a Pocket PC and just printing via bluetooth at a job site. Would rather have my powerbook though to do the same thing. Also have considered just using virtual PC, which I have installed but not used. If I used it for nothing more than HI reports and contracts, I guess that would be okay too. Just looking for the most simple solutiojn that provides a comprehensive report in the best format - but who isn't, huh?

Just a note - Apple just released their wireless mighty mouse - the wired mm is the best mouse I've ever used - wonder how the bluetooth wireless will hold up on 2 AA's

Thanks in advance.

It's a very powerful relational database; it's abilities are only limited by the user's development/programming abilities. I use it for everything, & I do mean everything.

I could go on at length, but it would be too long & I don't have time. Download a sample @ Filemaker & check it out.
