So I bought and installed a bootcamped version of Windows 8 for 2 main reasons: to play some random Win-only games, and to run FL Studio and some old non-mac plugins on it for the variety of rare sounds. I also wanted to lol at the lame "tiles" and see what they are up to these days. But is this too old school? Can some of you who run parallels (thats the "it" simulator right?) chime in on the difference in performance? I also got 16GB Ram now in my 2012 uMBP 15. I remember it used to be a duel between parallels and one other one but these days parralels is all i see mentioned. Is it just as good as boot camp? I regret it because I partitioned (you dont partition in parralels right?) and now its such a hassle to close all my windows and restart and more often than not I have something important running and I just feel like it was a mistake. And then Lord knows which OS its gonna start into when I restart the system and I always find Im worried about needing to hit option at boot and all types of minor hassles like that. Im not running Crysis 2 or anything on windows, just some random medium games. But if there is any noticable lag or slowdown that matters. I just want to know what the experience is like on parallels? is it perfect?
