I think I only have the one account, but I always password protect my accounts just in case someone breaks into my house and steals the puter while I'm not home. I grew up in a city where people would steal your laundry off the clothesline and break into your house and steal the food from your fridge. Even though I live in the country now, I set the alarm on my car even if I'm just running in the house to get something. Old habits die hard. <br><br>PS: Once I bought a dog, back when I was living in the city, to protect my apartment. Someone stole my dog! <P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by dreed2 on 02/28/08 08:02 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
Looking at the salient points:<br><br>1. Runs seamlessly beside OS X all the time?<br><br>2. From another thread I think I've decided on Win XP but do I need home version, simple, pro ?<br><br>3. I just want Windows occasionally when something says it won't work on Macintosh or for a prog not available in OS X AND . . . because I like toys <br><br>Based on the above:<br><br>1. Parallels or VMWare Fusion will do. My preference would be Parallels since it's developed inhouse<br><br>2. XP Home will do. Most features of XP Pro you'll never use.<br><br>3. Just make sure none of those apps are 3-d intensive games.<br> <br><br><br>
My Win XP Home arrived yesterday. I need to do a back up and then install / partition -- do the Boot Camp thing and install Win XP.<br><br>Today I played outside all day. Sat down to enjoy supper and a gin and tonic. Went to get out of my chair and could hardly bend my joints. Hip hurt like h e c k. My body just insists on aging and I'm not ready for it to do that! <br><br>I was taking 1/2 yard of river rock out of back of Toyota and making a path -- actually widening my front walk by a little more than a foot.<br><br>Maybe I'll do the computer thing tomorrow.<br><br>Thanks for the input. <br><br><br><br>
