Does it eliminate the need to get a 3rd party app to run Windows?
You never needed a 3rd party application to run Windows.
if you're asking for virtualization, the answer is no, it's still a partion and reboot solution.
So, if I don't have something like Parallels, I'll have to shut down and re-start in Windows?
Sorry if this seems dense, but I have held off switching to Mac (my wife has an iMac, though) because I'm a heavy Quicken user and Quicken for Mac (by all reports) blows. I want to be able to fast-switch to Windows to get to Quicken, but otherwise I'll be using Mac software.
Rebooting isn't that much of a pain for free.
The good news is that Quicken has seen the dollar signs in the air with the resurgance of the Mac platform, and announced (last week?) that it will be putting out far less crappy versions of their software for Mac in the near future.
They didn't exactly put it that way ("less crappy"), but you get the drift.
My main issue is the in(un?)convertibility of data from the Windows version. I didn't spend years building up my history just to cough it all up in a conversion to Mac. That, and the fact that scheduled transactions and online payee data don't port over. That's just silly.
ETA: 2007 for Mac isn't even Universal. Talk about red-headed stepchild.
