Hello everyone! I finally persuaded the powers that be at my office to buy me a MacBook Pro instead of the Dells that everyone else gets. This will be my first Mac experience in a long time (10 years or so) so bare with me here. I definitely have to have Windoze on the machine so I can keep up some development projects that aren't cross-platform - which leads to my question. What is the best/most efficient way of running Windoze in VMWare Fusion? Do you guys recommend (and forgive me if I get something wrong here) running BootCamp to repartition my drive into two partitions one for windoze, one for OSX - and then run Windoze from the separate partition? Or is it better (performance-wise and feature-wise) to keep a VMWare image file of Windoze on my OSX partition? I'm looking for someone to give me pros and cons with both ways. Obviously I know I can't boot into Windoze separately if I go the VMWare image way, however I'm assuming I won't need to based on what I've heard about how well VMWare Fusion runs in OSX. Am I incorrect in thinking this? I'm thinking it may be easier to transfer files back and forth if Windoze is on a separate drive/partition - is this the case or is it just as easy to transfer files between an image file and the real harddrive (maybe through a "fake" networked drive or just simple drag and drop?) I will be using iWork for most things, however I will have Office 2k3 installed on the Windows machine - and I understand that I can set OSX to automatically launch VMware and open .doc/xls/ppt files in Office inside of the VMware virtual machine. Can this be done with both the image and partition method? Any other tips/tricks/pitfalls to avoid would be great. I'm really looking forward to getting my Mac and this is the only thing I have left to figure out. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
