To clarify - Virtual PC is not available stand alone at academic prices.
Several people from my own campus have said it is advertised as a stand
alone product with commercial pricing, and indeed one catalog reseller
lists Microsoft Virtual PC for Mac 6.1 for a little over $100, more if with
a version of Windows. An upgrade from earlier versions is also sold.
