    I'm installing XP in parallels. Hope all the bootcamp drivers work!

    P.S. this thing is so hot I can feel it through the pillow. I gave the VM 15GB of HD space and 1 gig of ram, since I'll be using it for Adobe Premiere and Adobe Audition.

    You're supposed to install the drivers that come with Parallels. There should be a menu option to do so. It installs a graphics, mouse and network driver that enhance the performance of the machine. VMware is the same way.

    Don't run your MacBook on a pillow, that just traps the heat real nice for it!

    Righteous response. Audition was skipping when it played audio.

    I use it because it integrates with premiere.

    I was just messing wit you, its pretty awesome I know. did you know adobe auditon used to be cool edit pro, which was and still is the standard in radio production these days (its the standard, I didn't say the best. but the standard nonetheless)

    I want to buy and learn Final Cut Studio, but there is a monday deadline and I've already done animations with voiceovers using these tools. There aren't even free demos of Premiere and Audition for OS X :(
