The reason I ask is simple. I know emulation is pretty fair on the Macintosh, I am saving up for a beautiful new MacBook Pro.
But I also have the latest PC hardware as well. I can build a really nice box. But I am finished with Windows. The only issue is, Windows emulation of the old game systems is far ahead of Mac. Is this the same for Linux?
Yes, what I am saying is that the only reason I keep Windows around is for emulation.
I don't want to toss this nice equiptment, nor stay with Windows. I've been reading about SUSE and Red Hat and Mandrake. Really sweet stuff. But emulation?

Great Thread !
I ask me the same thing for a long time now. But Windows has the best emus around I think.
Time will tell.
