I guess that disqualifies me then. ;) I had a real PC box 10 years ago,
but once I moved to Parallels I never looked back. There was a single
discrepancy (in cursor redraws) in one of my apps in Parallels version
2.x but ever since version 3.0 I haven't ever found any differences. I'm
satisifed that I'm getting the "PC experience" and so far my Windows
clients have never noticed (and most never know) that I test Windows
builds in emulation. For a while I had Ubuntu running as well without
any trouble, but I haven't kept up with that OS since I don't have any
current clients who need software on it.
I can't speak for other emulators, since I've only used Parallels. But I
think the technology has matured enough now that needing to duplicate
physical hardware is becoming a thing of the past.
