iRAPP merges Mac, PC
Code Rebel has debuted with iRAPP 1.0, a program that lets PC owners run applications residing on their Mac systems. Users can choose to see fused, Mac-only or PC-only desktops, with the former two displaying both Mac OS X icons and the Menu Bar. Text and images can be copied between the two operating systems, and iRAPP also grants access to any peripherals that might be attached to a Mac. Users are further able to access multiple accounts on a single Mac, and multiple Macs hooked up to a network; these can be assigned to separate screens on multi-monitor PCs. On the PC side, Windows 2000, XP or Vista is required; Macs must be running Mac OS X 10.4.8 or higher, installed on iMacs, Mac minis, MacBooks or Mac Pros. iRAPP costs $80.
