I couldn't get 8, 9, or 10 to install on my G4, under either of VPC 5 
or 6.

Have you tried many esoteric systems yet under VPC 7? I can't figure 
out if newer versions are getting more, or less compatible. For 
example, NEXTSTEP for Intel runs under VPC5, but not VPC6. OS/2 Warp 
Connect is just the wrong side of stable on either, but in different 
ways. AIX 1.3 almost boots on both. BeOS r5 isn't terribly happy with 
VPC6  either. I've been wondering whether I ought to give VPC 7 a shot, 
but I just can't make myself drink the Kool-Aid.

it's black maaaaagic
