    Hello,
    I am hoping this is not nasty to post in here.
    But I think some guys here may know.

    I've got the above link, but did not think they had
    any Sparc/Alpha emulators. I know VPC emulate x86 32-bit systems. Is it
    possible for Sparc/Alpha emulators
    that run as well as VPC?

    Thanks
    Jack

    e.g.
    Host: Win XP SP2
    Guest X Window/Sun OS
    Host hardware: Intel P4
    Guest Hardware: Sparc/Alpha/digital workstations
    Thanks

    I've never heard of one, but that doesn't mean it's not out there. It
    would be quite slow though, as the CPU itself would have to be
    emulated not just virtualized like VPC does.

    This is a product that makes it possible to run SPARC based programs
    in Solaris x86-64.
    It is not nearly free though....
