    Let's say I've got a mac pro with OSX & XP installed and two monitors. Is it possible to run OSX on one monitor and XP on the other simataniously?

    If you're using Parallels or Fusion, sure. Just set windows to full screen in your second monitor.

    Yes, with either Parallels or VMWare. You won't get much gaming performance at all though...

    I'm going to use it mainly for a java based web application. OSX doesn't support the latest java, which I need to run this application without hanging. VMware should be able to handle that, right?
