I've installed VMWare fusion on my mac. When running on the mac it saps a lot of speed. So I was thinking of installing Bootcamp as well. I hear a lot about parallels, but I would've thought vmware fusion is a parallel as it is running alongside it; no doubt I am wrong here . So is it possible to get vmware fusion to fire up on it's own from the beginning or must I purchase bootcamp. Can both applications be installed on the same machine?
