Another option for Windows on an Intel Mac

I have been reading Josh Bancroft’s blog, Tiny Screenfuls, and see that there is another option to run Windows that actually may be a bit more desirable. Check out my MacGeek post for all the details and links regarding Parallels Workstation product.

I am actually installing it as I write this blog post and so far it is looking good. If I can run my naval architecture software, ActiveSync with Outlook, and a few other applications then I may just go with this $50 option instead of dual booting. I’ll post my experiences here on my blog, as usual.

    I’m interested to see how ActiveSync goes. Parallels seems to make the USB ports available to XP as virtual devices – I wonder if that will cause any problems?

    I’ve also noticed that sound doesn’t work in the VM – the Sound device is in the Devices list, but it’s greyed out.

    Keep us updated!
