"Don't buy this..."

March 21, 2006  |  By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

 |  Version: WinTel 2.1.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Don't bother buying this crap. I did, and even after two 20 hour attempts to install Win XP, it doesn't work. And both WinTel's UI as well as their so called tutorials are not even a joke.
Instead, just go here http://www.beatnikpad.com/archives/2006/03/20/windows-mac-q and after 50 Minutes XP runs without problems and with a decent UI.

"Tech support and intel iMac"

March 10, 2006  |  By maconlysource

 |  Version: WinTel 2.1.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have had absolutely great support from them.
Recieved myimages and installed Windows 2000 without problem.
With XP there is documented info on it needing special install whether on Q or WintelOSX.

Yes the install of XP is an all nighter, but it can be done.

Any problems were addressed with no more than a 1/2 hour delay in email response.

Response for me in PST was always in the evening.

"Really - don't waste your money or your time! Dead..."

March 06, 2006  |  By afranklin_dotmac

 |  Version: WinTel 2.1.1

Summary

...horse!
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Here it is: I have been unable to install W95, 98 or XP. I have tried and tried. All either fall at the first hurdle or drop dead just before the winning post. This nag needs putting down.

For info I have tried on an iMac G5 and a Powerbook G4. Over and over. Buy VPC and just install it.

"Almost useable, but far from finished"

February 22, 2006  |  By rafirafrafster

 |  Version: WinTel 2.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I left some feedback back on version 2.0.1 where the emulator was proported to be a ton faster, and in fact, was barely useable. To be fair, this new version, which employs an Intel-native version of qemu, runs much much better, and in fact feels fairly zippy on a stock core duo iMac. That said, it's still very buggy, and randomly hits weird slowdowns for some strange reason. Not ready for prime time, but much better than the last version.

"Til he's out of business..."

February 20, 2006  |  By bdkennedy1

 |  Version: OpenOSX WinTel 1.0.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I noticed that the developer cancelled his previous VersionTracker post with the dozens of negative comments. But as long as he's in business, I'll be here. Why he hasn't been sued or taken out by the FTC is beyond me. See this is how this software works. He advertises blazing performance, you buy the software hoping that since Virtual PC doesn't work, this will. You try do get the software to work (that is if they EVEN send you the link to download it), it doesn't so you complain and you get no response. Bye $25.

"Don't buy this ****!"

February 19, 2006  |  By mcboot

 |  Version: WinTel 2.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I tried to use Wintel, but this application doesn't do at all what it was made for. Installing XP took over 63 hours and it still doesn't work. An old AT went faster on 8 Mhz.
Helpdesk is poor and insufficient. Wrong answers to my problems. Bad reading from them.
Overnight update seemed to be the wrong one. Last night another update receiverd. Still no starting XP.
I dropped it into the tras, where it belongs!

Advise: keep the 25 dollars in your pocket!!!

"Worst piece of junk ever"

February 18, 2006  |  By zevlac

 |  Version: WinTel 2.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I bought version 2.0.1 two days ago and never got the password to open the downloaded image file even after numerous emails and phone calls: very frustrating. Then I received a link to download version 2.1.0 with a password this time. After trying every thinkable solution: win2000 and winXP CDs or disk images, VPC image, etc, no dice!
in a nutshell: no customer support and this product plain sucks. keep your $25!

"Worst software experience ever yet"

February 03, 2006  |  By music7

 |  Version: WinTel 2.0.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I recently purchased version 2.0.1 and I haven't felt more ripped off with a purchase in my entire life.

Firstly, my original Win2k CD wasn't recognised at all neither a DMG image. After a few more tries I managed to boot from CD and imagine my surprise: it took more than four hours to install the system. Using Virtual PC on a PowerPC took about half an hour.

Since this software is barely usable because Bochs runs at 10Mhz and isn't stated anywhere on the site I decided to delete all the files from my system and mailed the developer asking for a refund. This was a week ago and got no response. I lost $20 but I hope this review to stay and let people know my experiences regarding software quality and customer support.

"THIS APP SUCKS"

January 24, 2006  |  By bonaccij

 |  Version: WinTel 2.0.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have to agree with everyone on this page about these developers. I have placed exactly 5 calls and I have sent 4 emails - no return - and I can't get this thing running either. What I suggest we do is everyone contact me and I will get a class action law suit started against these people. I think they are crooks and they need to be taken down. I have a lot of contacts that will help us with this.

Please send an email with your name, and all of your information and I will start getting this all together. I think this behavior is ridiculous and we shouldn't have to stand for it.

"OpenOSX should be sued"

January 23, 2006  |  By BDKennedy

 |  Version: WinTel 2.0.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Don't bother with this garbage developer. I bought version 1.0 for my G5. I followed the instructions to the letter and was never able to get the program running. I never received replies to my e-mails, never received a refund and never received the free upgrade to version 1.1 that was advertised on the web site.

I can't believe no one has filed a class action lawsuit with all these similar complaints.
