Running XP SP2 on a Mac Book Pro (2.16ghz), and it's been running pretty decently. I've only been doing minor tasks (chat programs, GPS device updates, etc), but I've also managed to run a few FPS games like MOH, although it's at least 6-7 years old.<br><br>It's not as snappy as on my 2.68ghz gaming rig, but all the hardware works great (built-in iSight too!) & it does just what I need it to. <br><br>If you've got any *specific* questions, let me know... Otherwise, I spend most of time on the Mac side. <br><br>
Much less problems and much faster than Parallels. Much better hardware integration.<br><br>Don't run Parallels off the Boot Camp partition BTW. If you crash Parallels it will probably corrupt the Windows install, unless they've fixed it recently.<br><br>Remember, there may be problems, it's freakin' Windows. <br><br>---------------> Trivia link-up.<br><br>

I believe you. The thing for me is that I don't really care too much, since it is only used for games. If something were to go terribly wrong I wouldn't mind re-installing. I'm not even running anti-virus software. <br><br>------<br>"Take that some place else."

On a slightly different note, VMWare Fusion 1.0 has now been released. I have just downloaded the software and will perform an install in the morning.<br><br>I wonder if the early full release has something to do with the Mac Event...VMWare Fusion 1.0 was due to be released towards the end of August.<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by bookrat on 08/07/07 08:47 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
