    No, there is no windows installation involved :)

    Ok thanks, does crossover work well? Or is something like boot camp where you have to install windows work better?

    Boot Camp is compatible with ALL Windows apps perfectly, but Crossover is more convenient. There is a Crossover trial, and you don't have to buy a copy of XP or Vista. There is also a compatibility list :)

    Its a proprietary offshoot of the open-source WINE :)
