Hi everyone, I am new to Mac and want to use it full time. However, i still need access to cute ftp and quickbooks on the Pc. My friend who is a web designer said vmware is the way to go, best program. Yet a review in macworld said parallels newest version supports 2.0 and has some issues but overall better. Can i get some honest feedback here? I did hear parallels was very slow and used much memory in comparison. I want the most user friendly option available. And how does bootcamp "work" with either of them? The disadvantage to bootcamp is the re-boot necessary. I am excited to make a choice but seems there are pros and cons to both. I am running XP media center. I have no clue what Linux is/does, can anyone shed some light on this as it is frequently an issue on these threads. Does not apply to me but may be something i am interested in. Thanks so much!
