operator, as for os-x you can load multiple os's on the box using parallels or boot camp. I currently run Mac Os-x and XP, I have a fedora install of linux in the wings as well.

Yeah but like a hotrodder I do care about gaming performance even though i'm actually just using my machine to surf bikeforums 99.9% of the time.

So we going to do a ride this weekend/tomorrow guys?

You'd be surprised how fast apps run with the Dual core intel chip. Mind you a quad Core G5 tower would get the geek in you twitching, it's a nice piece of hardware.

With me being more educationally centric in terms of design and production, I need both to be able to tell clients how to do what it is they need to on either platform and this setup offers the best of both world's from my perspective. Graphics and advertising definitely fall under the cross-platform umbrella, and it's nice to be able to test a site under several browsers on one machine. Plus you never know when a client dumps a PC file for an ad and you HAVE to make it work for the deadline.

Phew. Good thing none of my computing practices have any applicability to the real world

Is there any reason why you wouldn't use VMWare as well?

Parallels is the new VM, I can get the windows task bar on my mac and the PC desktop is hidden so it seems like the app is running in the MAC environment with the latest version. There is also an app that WILL run a Winapp directly in OS-X.
