    Since the multithreaded GL update WOW has run better in OSX than it did before.

    But im not really sure if it runs better in osx or windows xp, I was running it in osx but i put windows Xp on to play another game so i have it on there now...

    (besides im going to reinstall everything soon becuase im changing the hdd)

    so when i reinstall my macbook would i be better off installing World of warcraft under OSX or Windows?

    Im thinking of putting on xp becuase i have a nice little util that updates my UI mods for me.

    I have mine on both, but prefer to play on XP, even after the patch, which did make it a lot better. Force of habit I guess.

    This is completely non-scientific, but since the update shifted so much of WoW to the multiple cores, it would seem to play to the strengths of the MacBook to play it in OS X, while moving away from the weakness of the Intel graphics.

    Then again, benchmarks in both would settle it.
