    Or you can partition your hard drive and install windows on your mac. Haven't tried it but I imagine it would work.

    Why boot when you can run a virtual environment, via VMware Fusion, Parallels, or VirtualBox?

    They all work well, and don't "corrupt" the lovely Mac OS. Drag and drop sure beats a reboot!

    For example, I'm downloading Plazmic and DM 4.6 and TetherBerry right now, in the VM, without rebooting. When done, I just go to VM and continue, while still running Safari, Mail, Adium, Pages, etc.

    On your Mac you can install VMware Fusion, Parallels, or VirtualBox. Then install a copy of windows.
    What this does is allow you to use windows on your Mac and when you're done, just switch back over to OS X.

    Umm cause you get 100% of the computers computing power in bootcamp....
    not half. Or what you "allow"....

    I just did a week long class doing ArcMapping and TRUST ME... you want 100% of the power...

    K...
    When you use Fusion or Paraells you are running OSX AND XP at the same time... So your system is running at half speed....

    If you boot into bootcamp, OSX is NOT running at all and you get 100% of yoru computers power....

    Mo betta?

    Yes! Much better....thank you. Now I have a question for you....when you're using bootcamp, do you have to restart your Mac to go back to OS X?

    For something like running DM and downloading OS updates etc, VMware is fine. For running processor intensive apps or video-intensive stuff, of course going "native" with bootcamp would be better.

    The drag with bootcamp is that you do have to restart your computer to switch from Windows to OS X.

    I usually download in OS X, fire up VMware, then just drag/drop the downloaded files onto the Windows desktop. No rebooting.

    Lol quite the battle we have going on here, bootcamp you have to reboot to get back into Mac, where as virtualization is just a simple Apple + Q =) But I will say in fusion you can dedicate those precious resources accordingly!

    I don't really understand how different the process is with Mac, but in windows, it really does help to restart your computer after un/installing anything.

    right but not 100% into it...
    You'll get totally diff. laptop speed when in Bootcamp.
    Fuzion is GREAT though for doing basic things.. but when trying to crunch big files etc... can't beat Bootcamp.

    Hi guys - so in regards to the original question on this thread... Has anyone tried using Plazmic on their Mac, either through Bootcamp or Parallels/VM Fusion?

    Yep, you can restart your Windows install, while still working in OSX.

    I just find moving files (say, mp3s for example) across platforms easier/quicker with Fusion. Just drag and drop onto the Windows desktop. Done.

    Beats a reboot just to even access Windows!

    I wouldn't want to game or use intensive programs in any virtualisation though.
