    You could change "Windows on a Mac" to "Non Mac OS X on a Mac" but people would probably get confused and as vniow says, not many people do it, if you want to talk about it I'd join a more general tech site like http://arstechnica.com or http://slashdot.org

    Linux is good under parallels, which is really simple...
    It requires less to run well, and so dual booting is not often necessary.

    It should just be re-titled "Boot Camp" which would cover Windows & Linux.

    Agree. Make it easier as well, because when I first came here I didn't know if it was for Windows questions, or Boot Camp questions.

    But what about parallels? (and vmware?)

    I suppose it could be Bootcamp/Parellells/VMWare.
