In comparison to Virtual PC 7, it lacks guest additions but can perform better at certain tasks, such as video playback.

Architecture: PPC

Done! I bought this back in the day and have kept it around ever since. I'm even using it on my G4 Mac mini right now.

Also is this still for sale, because this page seams to imply it could be

In response to 3371-Alpha's post below (Oct, 2017): It seems like it's well and truly dead. That link is no longer active and pages pointing to Lismore's GuestPC also fail.

We could have versions up to the final 1.9.7 added to this page, if anyone has them.

Is this the latest version?

It says on that page that Guest PC version 1.9.7 is what they're selling, not this version. If the site is genuine I couldn't say. It appears to be unchanged since 2010.

Is this the latest version? Also is this still for sale, because this page seams to imply it could be but then it could also be another graveyard website abandoned on the internet.

Well, this software needs a key to activate. Luckly I found one on Google: ELNXS-HLWW3-JPKZG-SB01B-7DL8K. It works slower than Virtual PC 6/7. It emulates a Pentium Pro machine with Cirrus 5430 PCI video card but with no right mouse button support. However, it's really easy to configure.
