or vista? Bootcamp? Thoughts?
what specifically are they making you use in windows? like, is it a requirement that is in any way enforceable? or just laziness on their part?
Install it in bootcamp and run it in VMWare fusion. That way you can easily use XP if you have to and if for some reason you need a full environment, you can just reboot.
is VMWare fusion better then parallels? in what ways?
I dunno, they just say its a requirement. Some of the streaming videos I can't seem to get to work on the mac though.
Here's a review on it:
I'll be getting my copy in a couple of days, I'll let you know how it comes out.
I like it better than parallels; it's faster and feels better put together. When switching from window to fullscreen it doesn't stutter like parallels did on my machine. Apps open a lot quicker and are more responsive. It also allows you to have your VM image split into 2 gig files w/ no performance loss (2 gig image files can be stored on a fat 32 network share/external hd or dvd for backup).
If i install Xp on boot camp, can vm run off that image like parallels can?
forget boot camp...go for parallels. i need to use some windows applications and using parallels is much more convenient!!! and the best part is that my system isn't slowed down when i run windows alongside OS X.
Parallels in coherent mode ftw. Seriously, the new version of parallels is awesome! Run windows apps like native apps in osx
