    hey guys, im going to purchase a macbook within the next couple of weeks and want to dual boot windows and OS X with bootcamp and parallels.

    I was wonderind what operating system you guys would suggest as far as windows goes.

    Do you think that XP is outdated and a thing of the past or that Vista still has to many problems?

    you dont need both the paralells and boot camp i think paralells is better because you dont need to shut down to switch os's but it depends on what you want out of windows i sujest xp because it is reliable and works with just about everything

    XP - it is still the basis for all computer games and pretty much everything under the sun that Mac doesn't use. Vista is more of a shiny less useable version of XP. More for looks.

    vista is too bulky and pointless
    go with xp
    it's less likely to clog up your pc
