I hear that a lot. As a "reverse switcher" (Mac user in PC/wolf's clothing), I can attest to the attraction of running all these cool applications natively on a PC. I've decided that running PC apps on a Mac only works if it's an occasional application. For your daily apps (what I call dashboard apps because they're always on), Virtual PC is a weak solution at best.
Although we primarily develop Windows software at my company, we do have a number of Macs (I have a G4 in my office and a G5 next door and we have a couple of PowerBook users). All of us have decided that we really need two machines - one for the Mac stuff and one for the PC stuff.
Good luck - I'll be interested to see your comments on Tinderbox.
