Microsoft today said it will discontinue development of Virtual PC for Mac, reports MacCentral. “Mac BU has made the decision not to move forward with a Universal version of Virtual PC at this time; however, current Virtual PC customers will continue to receive product support,” said a Microsoft spokesperson in a statement. The company also said that it realizes some users require access to Windows applications, but “alternative solutions offered by Apple and other vendors, combined with a fully packaged retail copy of Windows, will satisfy this need.” The company also provided updated news on the status of Universal development of its other applications for Macintosh.
