Running Windows XP on a Mac
Just like people have always wanted to travel to the moon (and finally made it), people seem to have a fascination with running Windows XP on a Macintosh. The human race has finally conquered this challenge. Dave Taylor has written an article on How do I install Windows XP on my Mac using Boot Camp?.
With the release of Intel-based Macs, now it is possible to dual-boot your Mac with Mac OS X and Windows XP. Apple released a free download called Boot Camp, which lets you repartition your Intel-based Mac. This gives you the ability to install Windows XP as a second operating system in a dual-boot configuration. Of course, you can also install additional operating systems if you want, such as Linux, to triple-boot.
Dave has also written another article on How do I install Windows XP on my Mac with Parallels Desktop?. Parallels Desktop is a Windows-capable virtualization package from Parallels, similar to Virtual PC from Microsoft.
Although I’ve used Microsoft Virtual PC for Mac to run Windows XP on my Mac, I usually use Windows XP’s Remote Desktop Connection to operate my Mac from Windows XP computer and the FREE Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac to control my Windows XP from my Mac.
