I think you have that backwards...? Parallels supports OSX (it has an OSX client), VMWare does not, at least that I can see. Unless you're talking about support as being able to run OSX inside the virtual machine - that's probably of less interest to Mac users at the moment. wink

Following through the links on the Parallel product, somewhere along the line i hit a page that talked about VMWare and it quoted the lady at VMWare as saying they're not ready for public release yet but they have it running in the labs on OSX now smile

At the end of the day, when the dust settles i'm pretty damn sure i'll blow the windows partition away, sit back and think "wow, that consumed a lot of evenings", but hey, it's fun for a while.

I'm about to load up my X Beyond The Frontier CD (and XTension) that's been in the cupboard since sometime in 2000 (wow, has it really been that long!) and have some fun.

Wow, after 6 years of owning a G4 I dove in and bought a used Powermac G5 (for really cheap) Monday to hold me over until Leopard and Adobe CS3 come out next year. And with this big news a day later I almost wonder if i should have waited till August annoucements.

I'm really impressed at what Boot Camp can do and excited to see it as a final product in Leopard. I was a former PC user and I have absolutely no intention of going back to Windows but it would be a handy thing to have to boot up a game I can't get on mac, or an emulator or a special piece of software. Beats having 3 computers in my apartment.

I can see a few things I could use in Windoze (PinMame, something my brother wants me to try out, etc) but I can't exactly see doing umpteen different things on the Windoze side of the Mac. Still, I may want one of these things, just because I love pinball (and they don't make the machines anymore, at least as many as they used to...)

Have you heard of LIttlewing? Japanese developer who just does pinballs for Mac and PC. Monster Fair is a really good one and apparently another is under development. Well worth the shareware price.

Littlewing's stuff is awesome. I've been a big fan of Crystal Caliburn for many years.

Could someone who has installed Boot Camp please try to install Visual Pinball and VPinMAME and tell us how well it runs a few tables?
Thanks.

Wow, then the implementation is apparently perfect! Good job, Apple! wink

pinmame! Yes...

When a $350 dual boot mini is available in ~2 years, I think I'll be in.

Just call me... cheap and patient...

A blue screen in Windows nowadays typically indicates a problem with kernel-level drivers. Odds are it is, in fact, Apple's fault by virtue of some beta Apple drivers that get installed. Oh, irony.
