And I haven't really found a need for apps I can't get on the Mac.  I've
been using Macs since the day before it was released for sale--and
that's before Windows or Linux ever saw the light of day.

I guess some people get worked up over OSs but I don't really relate to
that. I still have OS-2 2.1 somewhere around here (along with Lotus
Smartsuite for it) so not much fazes me. I did once have to restore an AMOS
system at work, though... it took three days to piece together a bootable
hard drive cartridge with the full set of utilities and the BASIC program we
ran on it <8^O

But how about that Prius? Great car huh?

Because you can run both Mac and Windows.

Further, tests at PC magazine show that Windows XP runs faster on a Mac
duo than on a PC with the same processor and speed.

Sure, but how well does it run Microsoft "Bob?"

Or - more to my uses - how well does it run the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET
programming suite?

Undetermined.  Parallels' web site says this:


It says "any version of Windows", so that should include Bob, but Bob
isn't specifically listed.

And, if you're interested in Linux or Unix, or even OS/2:


If that suite runs under one of those OSs, I see no problem.

Apple's current solution (although rumor has it that the next version of
OS X will include virtualization instead of or in addition to) is to
boot into Windows, but only Windows XP home or professional, and not be
able to run Mac OS and Windows at the same time.  We should be finding
out more about it in August, when Apple hosts its annual Developers
Conference.
