It'S a Mac! It'S a PC! It'S ... Both?

Dual-boot is one option. On my MacBook I have been running software called Parallels which allows me to run a full version of Windows XP inside my Apple environment. I prefer Parallels because I can share the same files back and forth - import with an OS X application, edit with a Windows application. Parallels also supports Linux but I haven't installed that yet - my recent experiments with video have been straining my 150 gig hard drive. Anyhow, the Windows environment runs as well under Parallels as anywhere else, which is to say, more slowly than I would like, but well enough that it will do for the applications I really like.
