Best of Both Worlds

ZDNet is reporting that MacMall is selling Macbooks that are pre-loaded with both Windows XP and MacOS. You can get your dual boot system in two flavors: Apple’s free BootCamp 1.1 which allows you to boot either operating system, or Nova Development’s Parallels Desktop … which allows you to run both at the same time.

This sounds like a fantastic solution for those of us weirdos who use both PC and Mac (yay! One computer!), but one wonders if it might be prudent to wait to see what unfolds with Windows Vista, if only to avoid the extra cost of upgrading the operating system.— MEGHANN MARCO
