Actually, you don't even need VMWare. The way to test multiple versions of IE doesn't really
involve a lot of "messing around". If you can download and install something you can have it. I
literally did this on my machine in under 5 minutes. (and its free)


On that page are the prepackaged items you need. You'll be up in running in a snap. Then you can
have all those browsers running natively, not in emulation. I think there is something to be said
for that. 

Then you just ask your mac buddies to test for mac, or get mac in the corner somewhere. I'm
actually a former "mac-head" that was basically forced to go PC by my employers. While I love the
mac, and the PC has many problems, it's never the demon the zealots make it out to be :)

Someday when I actually have some extra cash (yeah right) I'll get me some OSX Macishness.
