Run Windows XP on your Mac Book Pro

I have to admit, it's pretty cool to see Apple's BootCamp. This software allows you to install/boot Windows XP on a MacBook Pro. I'm intrigued by the thought of doing this. I'd love to use WAPT, Beyond Compare, TopStyle and HomeSite on my laptop.

However, I realize that the process of installing BootCamp would probably take up the whole day - and after 2 days, I'd never use boot into Windows again. It's just easier to use my Windows box when I need Windows stuff. The thing I am interested in is running Windows XP on my Mac using VMWare. Then I don't have to reboot the whole machine just to do some CSS tweaking with TopStyle.

According to this article, Parallels will be announcing a Mac virtualization package this week. I'm looking forward to that kind of solution as well. Dual-booting is a non-starter for productivity as far as I'm concerned.

Virtualization is the way to go. On your own workstation and on the server. Me too is waiting for that announcement from Parallels.

How about Mac OS X bootable under VMware, XEN, MS Virtual PC/Server. I run MS Virtual PC on my Laptop, XP as host with Ubuntu as a guest. Performance for Ubuntu is excellent to the point that people believe I have a native install. Love to have OS X as another guest. This will give Apple a much greater market rather than dependency on Apple hardware to run OS X.

I think you guys are missing the real target market for this product. As a long time VMware customer, I agree wholeheartedly that virtualization software is preferable for most of us. But the one place where virtualization software struggles is 3D gaming, and that's also one place where Apple has struggled in the market - Mac versions of the latest games often get released well after the Windows versions, so hard-core gamers who might otherwise want a Mac tend to stick to Windows boxes.

That's my take, anyhow, FWIW.

Parallel's virtualization software is out in beta.

kelzer is absolutetly correct. Only reason I chose to own a PC is for gaming and this announcement has me looking at the Mac catalog for the first time since 1994.

The announcement of Boot Camp was found-a-dollar exciting. If the Parallels software works, their software release is found-Mr-Franklin exciting. Has anyone out there installed the Beta? I thought this day would come sometime within the Intel Mac's first year. But it has happened before the Intel Macs were even supposed to be in our hands! Exciting times... because I can run Windows? No, because I can run Windows less.
