    I have just installed XP on my MBP after holding out. Now the main advantage for me is that I can play any game that I likem, which means that I now have Half Life 2, which I must be honest is an incredible game.

    So, this may have be done before, but are you using Boot Camp?

    Well the option I need isn't there.

    No: But I will in the future.

    I am waiting for the final release and to see if Vista works with it well. It will be handy to have for LAN parties! :)

    I use BootCamp to play Day of Defeat: Source (HL2 engine) and Battlefield 2. Of course there are the occasional other games but, those are what I'm into playing now. I bought Unreal Tournament 2004 for Mac before BootCamp came out, luckily it runs as a Universal Binary now so that's good - and it's always nice not having to restart (although only 30 seconds) to play a game :D
