    Moderators can we have two stickies:

    XP vs. Vista

    Parallels vs. Fusion vs. Bootcamp

    And if being really courageous we could add:
    Windows 32 bit vs. Windows 64 bit - Post Questions Here

    These first two topics seem to take up the entire forum at times and it would be nice to have one place for answers to these very common questions. We could even add a poll to each of them.

    Thanks.

    If you can provide links to the threads you're talking about, and if they're comprehensive enough, we'll consider it. :)

    I was thinking originally to have the mods create two new forums so that we can consolidate everything, add some polls, and there wouldn't be any "author bias." Plus, many people want to know about virtualization vs. bootcamp which is why I suggested including bootcamp in the virtualization discussion.

    Maybe what we really need is some new buyer's guides and pray that someone will read them. I don't have time to search for good threads now, but will repost later after searching.

    However, I do think they should start off clean so that the first post gives an accurate intention of it's purpose, for example:

    "This is the place to post all questions regarding the choice between Fusion vs. Parallels vs. Bootcamp. To understand the differences between these options you should first read the buyer's guide about Virtualization here (this would be a link to buyer's guide), and Bootcamp here (this would be a link to the bootcamp buyer's guide)."

    And it would have a poll with options possibly like:

    Parallels Only
    Parallels with Bootcamp
    Fusion Only
    Fusion with Bootcamp
    Bootcamp Only

    This is just a rough outline, but many of the other topics have these kind of stickies and I think it would be helpful.

    Poles have already been done,but if they were done again you would also have to have

    Those who have tried BOTH fusion and parallels,but choose fusion

    Those who have tried BOTH fusion and parallels,but choose parallels

    Thats the only way of sorting out the fusion vs parallels war

    Fusion Rocks

    Ok I updated the User Guide: Booting Windows on the Mac - hopefully it will help somewhat, but I still think we should have some sort of stickies.
