Dru's mentioned this on her blog, but I don't think she's tried it out
yet.  There's now a BSD equivalent of Win4Linux called Win4BSD.  At
present, it only works on FreeBSD and PCBSD, but it's basically an
emulator built on qemu.  

However, it is, at least in my experience, running far better than
the port of qemu and kqemu.  At present, the price is $50.00, going up
to $70 after October.  For my needs, at least, (running a Nortel VPN
client, FM Pro8 and having a copy of Office to test various things) it's
working perfectly.


I hope they succeed--it's nice when they aim commercial ventures at the

Xander: I'm not worried. If there's something bad out there, 
we'll find, you'll slay, we'll party.
