Im going to start by saying that I moved to mac for its simplicity, cleanliness, and elegance. Now Im at a point where I need solid works, which is not compatible with mac. There are 2 options that Ive already considered, and am very unhappy with. Bootcamp: Simply stated: I hate windows. Its not simple, clean, or elegant and I would prefer to have quick access to the programs I have in OSX. I don't want to restart my computer every time I want to use a program. Parallels: Better than bootcamp since it doesn't require me to restart my mac to access windows. What I don't like about parallels is that all of the windows crap clutters my launchpad. If there is a way to delete/uninstall all the preloaded programs that come with windows (internet explorer, calendar, etc.) shown in the image below. I don't want to 'ghetto fix' it by throwing them into folders. I just don't want them there, existing, at all. Ive tried using Wine to install solid works, but I could never get through the installation process. I think the solid works installation is too complex for wine. Is there a program that will place a maximum of 2 new icons on my launchpad that will allow me to install and use solid works on my mac?
