    Hi All,

    So, having taken the plunge and finally switched to OS X with my new Macbook Pro on it's way. I have one reason for needing to continue using XP.

    I use apps like PPSTREAM, TV Ants and such like to watch peer-peer TV. You can only run these in XP.

    Does anyone know how well these run via XP2 in Parallels? I know I can use bootcamp, but eventually I want Parallels running on an external display with OS X on the laptop display.

    Thanks in advance.

    I never actually used that type of thing but I have a MBP and run parrallels for gaming and things like that.. Windows on the external display, OS X on the labtop. It works great!
    I run CS and a few other games and any ohter lil pieces of software that are PC only... :( I felt dirty when I installed it on my MBP but its not 2 bad...
