I'm really tired of sites that make the article nearly a dozen linke pages long with only a couple paragraphs per page, it's just annoying. I just want the content.

In short, I'm too lazy to find out if they story picks up after the first page, but frankly I don't think Bootcamp and Parallels are very comarable and so is most likely a lacking article.

They stated that in the article at the end that there very different and what program is better is up to the user for there uses.

I strongly agree with you. On the flip side, I hate when a website has really long pages that should be extended into another page.

Its very simple:

Bootcamp can....


Use every ounce of your systems potential to speed up gaming and can use the systems onboard devices. (Read: USB)


Parallels can...

Provide fast access to nongraphic intensive Windows apps without rebooting.

:confused: I'm not sure what the whole big mystery about these two very different solutions is all about. Both are tools to do two different things.

I hear ya, but thankfully you can use the printer-friendly version (http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2006/08/02/review_bootcamp_parallels_desktop/print.html) to view it all in one page. Great trick to save on the clicks!

Not only that, but the number of spelling/grammatical errors just on the first couple of pages as I scanned it put me off giving it much credit anyway. I skipped to the end, and it's not like it gives any kind of real consensus one way or the other. I could easily read up more extensively on each thing elsewhere, so I didn't want to bother with this.

Ah, but you obviously don't have 12 pages to fill. ;)

I didn't make it through the article either, so what's the general consensus about trying to avoid viruses and crap in Windows? Is Bootcamp safer to isolate your system, or does it not make a difference?
