WINDOWS ON APPLE
With Apple Computer's market share shrinking, Macintosh devotees often need to run a program that exists only for Windows. If you're in that class, check out SoftWindows 95 from Insignia Solutions (800 848-7677). The $379 program lets you run Windows 95 in a window on your Mac desktop, giving you complete access to Windows programs, multimedia features, and networking. Performance is fairly sluggish--my 100-megahertz PowerPC felt like a midspeed 486--but it's fine for running those odd programs. You'll need a Power Mac or equivalent, 20 megabytes of RAM, and at least 140 mb of free disk space.
