Windows on the Mac


And finally, one of the things that attracted a Windows user like me to the Mac world was the recent development of a proper program to run Windows XP Pro on a Mac. This program, put out by Apple itself, is called Boot Camp, and provides a comprehensive solution to driver and Windows installation issues. This development is really appealing to me because I could still use some of my favorite programs that only run on Windows while still having the Mac in the background.

you should look at Parallels Workstation. It virtualizes the windows environment inside of mac os x so you don't have to restart everytime you want to launch your "favorite windows application." though it doesn't support directx so you'll still have to restart to play your games.

good luck on your switch!
