    Hi guys,

    I am new with Apple, I've bought an Macbook Pro 13'inch.
    But my friends say I need to install Crossover in order to use programms that run on Windows.

    My question is : Where can I find Crossover and how does it work ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Kuper

    Most Mac users that want to run windows either set up a bootcamp partition to boot into windows... or use virtual machines (VM) software. The best VM software out right now is either VMware Fusion or Parallels Desktop. You will be pleased with the performance of any of those if your MBP is the 4gb model. If it's the 2gb, I would suggest bootcamp, because then you are not splitting the laptop's resources between the two operating systems.

    I use VMware Fusion daily. Excellent experience.

    I also use VM, its always been reliable on my machines. You should definitely give all of them a romp, as you the user will pick out the features you like and dislike about each one.
