MacDailyNews Take: They think they need it, can’t live without it, so give it to them. Let them figure out for themselves what Mac users already know. It won’t take long.

  1. For the times when I feel like running my Pinto and my Porsche at the same time. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

    Just say no to XP. Life is much less complicated that way.

  2. i wouldnt feel like a real man with a dock that tiny ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” /> – so whats so interesting here anyway, very boring videos, not even any eye candy cube changeovers.

  3. My friend was trying to get Eclipse to run on his 17″ MacBook Pro, and it kept freezing up Mac OS X. Finally he just rebooted into Windows XP and Eclipse is working great. Now he can get work done.

    What do you think of that, MDN?

  4. Totally fscking lame

    Why was Mac OS X looking so lifeless?

    And of course it was running slow as sheeite becaue of the lame ass dual core iMac.

    SO he put the Windows crap on another monitor, bit frigging deal, it’s not like we are actually going to use Windows.

    FASCK this guy I wannan kick his ass.

  5. Well, unfortunately I have to run AutoCad. I got a cheap OEM Windows XP -SP2 license for $70 bucks for my iMac. (paying any money for windblows is like paying a $200 traffic ticket.) But is is cheaper and much faster than buying a cheap PC. The virtual machine runs AutoCad faster than any PC I’ve ever used – pentiums mainly. I’d imagine that Boot Camp would be even faster. But one windblows installation is more than I can stomach, so I did not even go that route.

    All things considered, I think Parallels did a pretty good job. Kind of amazing really when you think about the Mac and windblows history. Ugghh, now I feel kind of dirty inside. I’d better go take a shower.
