Why Virtual PC/VMWare/Wine For Intel Mac Excites Me

Because my salary is derived from me creating Windows applications and libraries. An emulation environment that "runs natively" will be very exciting to me, as I only really need to run Visual Studio in Windows, leaving the rest of my digital life on the Mac.

I only need to carry one laptop while I was relaxing on my sofa to both debug my program and edit my iMovie.

Of course, the performance of Visual Studio in the emulation environment is likely to be not so great... Let's hope there's still some magic yet to be realized in research labs.

(P.S. In my entire working life so far, I've only written one Mac OS X application, and one class Mac library.)
