I use them both together extensively.  I found that they work well 
together if you have a decent computer.  Emulation will be a bit 
slower, but it does have its advantages.  You can work on the Mac and 
then drag the project over to the PC on the same comp and test it out. 
Because you can do 99% of the work on the Mac, you only need to use the 
emulation for the most part to fix the small differences like fonts...
