Hey Everyone, I've been shamefully debating whether or not I want to install Windows 7 RC1 on my Macbook for the past few days now. It seems for the most part that many people out there in the forum world (on both Windows AND Mac forums) are quite impressed with Microsoft's new OS. Microsoft's COO, Kevin Turner, even made a rather bold (yet unbelievable) statement the other day basically saying that Windows Vista post SP2 was more secure than Linux and Leopard! (I know, I laughed out loud too!) Read it for yourselves at http://windows7news.com/2009/04/14/microsoft-claim-windows-7-will-be-more-secure-than-linux-and-leopard/ Anyway, this brings me to my questions... 1. Is Windows 7 really more secure than its predecessors? 2. If I decide to download Windows 7 on a separate partition, is there any chance that my OS X Leopard partition will be harmed or "unsafe" by the HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of viruses and malware that run rampant in the PC world? 3. What are the advantages/disadvantages of installing it on a separate partition using Boot Camp or using a virtualization program such as Parallels or VMware? Is one safer than the other? Your opinions and comments will greatly help me and hopefully others in their decision making process to download Windows 7 or not. Thanks!
