While the June 6 announcement that Macintosh computers will soon run on Intel chips offers the intriguing possibility that Macs may one day be able to run Windows programs at full throttle, there already is an option that lets users have some of the same capabilities. While it's far from perfect, a program called Virtual PC lets Apple users install and run Windows-based programs almost as if their Mac was a PC. Microsoft has owned the product since 2003, buying it from a company called Connectrix.

Virtual PC will run full screen: you just need to maximize the window (press the green button). At that point, Virtual PC looks just like windows would look on a windows machine. The task bar can be set to appear and disappear, and individual programs can be maximized, etc.

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
