    Has anyone had any experience running the Windows 64bit version of Maya on a Mac with Windows installed? We are a company with 20+ Macs and are not looking to purchase a new machine to run Maya. Since Maya has yet to release a 64bit version for the Mac OS, we are contemplating converting 1 of our existing Macs to a Windows based machine. As I have not seen any posts on this topic yet, hopefully it doesn't mean that there are no people running with this configuration.

    I haven't run Maya64 directly, but I do run Windows7-64bit on my MacBook Pro and I have run a ton of other 64 bit software on it without a problem. Again, just booting into windows with Bootcamp means you're in real windows and it will look and feel just like; well, windows.

    How is your hard drive formatted to run your 64 bit Windows 7? Are you also running OS-X on the flip side?
