Yup, VirtualPC that rings a bell.

As for PC emulators, I am at a brick wall right now, because I'm using an iMac (not enough memory available) so will look into that when I get a G5 (some day). I think it's called Power PC? but I'm not sure. I leave that up to my tech guy to know.
And I've never once had a problem using a Mac. PC's on the other hand, I'd like to take a hammer to! (no offense to PC users, just my preference)

Drum roll, please.
OS 10.2.6, Safari 1.something, can't find version number, a lovely white iMac purchased in June from the Apple Store in Tice's Corner NJ....
Wordtracker works fine. It's just in your browser. I typed in a keyword, clicked the "next" button, waited, scrolled down for my results, was astonished at how totally irrelevant they were, and am continuing to futz around the site whilst busily remembering why I never bothered with WordTracker. I failed to notice anywhere that the site said you needed a Windows machine or anything of the sort. We are talking about the same place, right-- http://www.wordtracker.com-- and I don't think they offer any other service...
So, in conclusion, I'm baffled as to what aspect of wordtracker.com is platform-dependent, and where the problem arose. Perhaps they were confused by your email and thought you wanted a downloadable program, to which their answer was "no way" because they aren't even making one for Windows, so why would they for Mac?
I really don't know. But, again, I'm on a Mac, and can use Wordtracker without the slightest bit of trouble.
If you like, I can test it in Mozilla, Mozilla Firebird, and IE 5, but not just now-- it's past my bedtime. I'm amazed I've made it this far.

Are you sure you're talking about WordTracker? I just don't understand...

The Internet works on a Mac, too.

Of course, that's really just a question of how a page displays... I'm not aware of any functionality that's lost when a page is displayed on a Mac.

I bought my mac in NJ because the sales tax was a couple percentage points lower there than Westchester (and many percentage points lower than NYC!!!), and when I called them, they were open, had it in stock, and would happily reserve it for me, in my precise configuration. (It's a 1 ghz, 728 mb ram, 17" display, SuperDrive, yadda yadda-- just before they came out with the new one, sigh, but mine's still pretty darn good so I'm not worried.) So...
It's a nice little store. Why, you've been there?
Oh, an aside on Virtual PC-- was just talking about it with my boyfriend, whose company is entirely run on Macs. Their head sales guy has an 800 mhz 17" iMac, and one of the clients wanted to see a remote demo of the company's database. They had a good screen-sharing program, but it only worked on Windows. No problem-- the sales guy booted Virtual PC, and installed and ran the screensharing software. So, he was on the conference call, conducted the demo, and ran the software without a problem. A couple times during the demo, the other side told him to wait a minute because their PC was lagging and had to catch up.
So I guess Virtual PC isn't that slow-- the sales guy was actually running 3 operating systems at once, because the computer boots OS X, he had OS 9 running for one of his programs, and Virtual PC is in fact yet another operating system running over the top of the Unix-based X.
If you are a mac user and absolutely need a program, Virtual PC is actually a workable solution. Good to know!!
But, WordTracker is still not a platform-based program.
Oh, to fill in the final detail, I asked Dave how to find the program information in a Mac program (Windows puts it in the Help menu. Mac doesn't) and I was running version 1.0 of Safari-- there haven't been any more releases since they came out with the first one a couple months ago. So, there's all my stats and info. It wouldn't be different with a different version of any of those things, but for completeness' sake, there's what I have.
<edited>spelling. D'oh! Ever since they installed the spellchecker and I started conscientiously not using it, I haven't been able to spell for crap.</edit>

Oh, hells, sure. There are plenty. I just went to some internet movie rental service website that I'd never heard of-- clicked a link from a friend's weblog who was asking how it was. The first thing it told me:
We are eager to share our rich internet movie rental experience but your computer does not meet the minimum requirements to use our website. Your computer requires the following:
*Windows 98, 2000, XP, NT.
I laughed so hard I could barely hit the "back" button fast enough to tell my friend what twits they were. Buncha eedjits. You don't alienate people with your web site. It was just the web site. I can watch DVDs. Truly, honestly. I do not need a Windows machine to watch a DVD.
Stupid twits. They deserve to fail. There's no need to turn people away from your website because they run the wrong browser, or even operating system. How stupid is that?
Anyhow. That's just poor design; it's got nothing to do with program functionality.
But I must say, that one stupid website is the only thing I haven't been able to do with my Mac that I could've done with a PC (I'm totally missing out, let me tell you-- it would've been an awesome website. A Rich Internet Movie Rental Experience, no less.). And I use my Mac much more than I ever used my PC because I actually enjoy using the foolish thing. That's a big difference right there. I could've built myself a PC for a fraction of the price, but it would just sit in my room and be off all the time and collect dust. The iMac actually gets taken with me on weekend trips and the like because I can carry it in one hand and it fits behind the seat in my car.
Yes, breaking newsflash: the Internet is Macintosh-compatible. Whoo!
, because, well, I can.
Thus ends my gushing about Macs for a while. That said, my bf and I are going, for our next project, to build a Toaster that will run Linux.

Yeah. I know Tice's very well. My sis lives in the snooty town it is in, which is next to an even snootier town called Saddle River. Erm... I meant upscale. In fact, she's a hop-skip and jump away from the mall. There is no right turn when exiting Tice's on County Road cos the folks further down that street and the snootier town next door did not want mall scruff to drive down their hallowed scented streets, even by mistake. They were also paranoid that their property prices would drop cos of the mall. No such thing has happened though - maybe the 'no right turn' did the trick. :laugh:
And Manisha... you know Joysey??
My sis has lived in NJ for over 20 years. First Montclair, then Teaneck, and now Woodcliff Lake. She's a doc in Hackensack and she's pretty good. And, I've always been a regular visitor to NJ because of her. When we were in upstate NY for about 9 months - and I mean way way upstate - we drove down to NJ every other weekend. It was my way of keeping my kitchen spotless. Her housekeeper would cook extra and freeze some for me!! The 200 mile drive was worth it. Now she's 800 miles away...
That apart, I want an iMac.

He idly considered at one point making a random-northern-new-jersey-town-name-generator.
Montwood. Montcliff Lake. Lakecliff Wood. Woodmont Vale. They're all phony and try to sound high-class. It's obnoxious. Not an area I'm terribly comfortable... We've started pronouncing neighboring Nanuet, NY's name as Nan-way, as though it were French.
My boyfriend's originally from Buffalo, and I'm from upstate NY-- I mean way upstate. I mean, well, relatively upstate: Troy, NY, a bit northeast of Albany.
I love my iMac more than I've ever loved anything computerey. It's awesome. It loves me. I love it. Happiness abounds.
