Britain.
Virtual PC is slow, most definatley.

BootCamp would deliver results to compete with PCs - if not faster.

Remember, BootCamp is NOT virtualisation - its the OS running nativley.

And yes, Video conferencing would work on BC. Not sure if the built-in iSights work yet, under Windows, though.
Boot Camp's latest incarnation has iSight drivers.

Ummm.... Seems that Bootcamp is the best option. Unfortunately I only have a Power Mac so can't get Bootcamp. Does anyone know about Parallels and running windows applications like Messenger/
