Bootcamp or parallels for all your BHW programs?
Vmware (nulled of course) is perfect for me! doesn't interfere with any running of my mac. Loaded with a win xp pro setup does the trick then installed tor, so any traffic from the VM doesnt have the same ip as my mac.
+1 for VM Ware Player. The download link is here:
Oracle also has an alternative called Virtual Box (I've tried it and didn't like it as much as VMWare):
I was also talking w/a guy at an Apple Store recently who highly touted Bootcamp, but I haven't tried that.
I do things a little differently.
I use my Mac on my PC.
Hackintosh via Chameleon Bootloader.
Although I am taking liberties with the term "Use my Mac". I haven't touched it in months
The guy in the apple store would talk up boot camp, i installed it as soon as i got my mac and it really isn't great and doesn't offer nice integration like vmware does, but personal opinion
I run on bootcamp most of the time, I rarely use Mac.... Windows is way better
VM/Parallels runs really slow for me, does anyone know why? Using Lion and Windows 7.
Virtual Box for me.
Tried Bootcamp, hated it.
@tjkn126 What mac are you using? i run it on a mac book pro i7 4gb ram + xp pro works fine i just increased the amount of ram and processor it can use in vmware settings, then increased the virtual ram in xp settings.
@toyo The argument of whats better mac or windows really depends on what you use it for, since i use mine for my multi media design degree and need access to programs like final cut pro and adobe suits its absolutely perfect and 3d rendering is around 10xs quicker than windows, but then i cant run all these dirty BH tools, so really depends on what you need it for to be "way better"
My only problems using vmware is for some reason it doesnt let me use my keyboard sound controls when its running, small compromise but..
Separate names with a comma.
