    First off, a few years ago I swore I'd never use Parallels ever again. I has nothing but troubles with v5. So I started using VMware. It was much more stable than P5 but, for some strange reason, it does not play nice with a trackball I have.

    So I crossed my fingers and tried P7. What a difference! It runs fast and works with my Kensington. Because I owed VMware, it was just $29!

    Sooo, I have Win7 and XP installed. Why not, eh?

    Which one do you prefer? I don't play games. Most just do office stuff and run some programs that only work on a PC.

    I have a top of the line 27" iMac with 16gb memory. I gave Win7 two CPUs and 2gb ram, XP, half of that.

    Windows 7 all the way.

    With the direction windows 8 is going it may be the best windows ever, past and present.
