    Default Running Mac on a virtual machine? (Things to do) and sideeffects.

    Hi, so I'm running Mac OS X lion on virtual machine on Windows 7. What are the side effects? And what can I do... meaning what are things you can do on a Mac that you can't do on PC. I know about pictures and stuff, but something else. :p
    I noticed there is no "command" button on my keyboard but Mac has it. Is there a way around that?

    im brand new here, and dont even have mac, but i have used a virtual machine before you may have a way to make a key a hotkey for the command button like press f2, or the ` key or something not really used.. numeric pad *, which u can use shift 8 for * instead, something like that

    The command key is automatically routed to the Windows key. It will be the same as if you had a windows usb keyboard plugged into your mac. It may feel a little bit weird at first if you are used to using Apple keyboard shortcuts, as the command key is where the windows alt key is, but you will eventually get used to it. Let me know how it goes for you. Are you using Virtualbox, or something else? Also, is Quartz Extreme working with the virtual machine? What about Core Image?
