How to organise my macbook partitions &software for better workflow?
I am an architect and I need to organise my partitions and software so that I have a good workflow.I use Bootcamp to run windows 7.This is the software I need to run:
-3ds Max ( windows only)
-Revit Architecture ( windows only)
I hate windows, but there is no mac version of 3ds Max or Revit. I understand that I have to logout and also transfer files in order to swap and work in both partitions. I love the Mac interface, especially with the Adobe CS5.
I have come up with two ways of arranging my workspace.
1.To run everything on windows, therefore create a large windows partition and leave a smaller one for mac (for personal use)
2.To make equal partitions and run only Adobe CS5 on the mac. Therefore, do the "heavy work"(max, revit) on windows and work the presentation/printing on the mac partition.
What would you guys suggest?

I would suggest a variant of #2 with a twist.
Also, get VMWare or Parallels and use that to run your Boot Camp partition for times that you may not need 100% performance.
