    I am wondering is someone can give me some help on the best way to run Windows XP on Leopard. I have it installed with Bootcamp on my MacbookPro but I am upgrading to a Mac Pro and was wondering what the best way to run both of them at the same time, such as parallels or VMWare fusion, and what the pros and cons of each are, RAM won't be a problem as the Mac Pro's can have 32GB but I am definitely wanting to run both of them at the same time but not sure what program to use?


    thanks in advance!

    What I would do if I were you is download the trials of both VMware and Parallels 4.0, and see which one you like better. Really it's all personal preference.

    i use VMware Fusion, because i got a strange screen when i tried to run Windows in Parallels, in my opinion your best option is VMware fusion
