Hello, I have some months ago come from the windows side to Mac. Still learning but enjoying it more and more. However for some things I would still need Windows (for example my e-banking does not support OS X). Nothing more demanding than internet and maybe MS Office. My question: - Which Windows version would your recommend ( 7 / 8 / 8.1 32 or 64bit?)? - Is Bootcamp the best (easy/stable/quick) way of going forward or rather VM etc? Many thanks for all hints. My setup: Macbook Pro (classic - MD101, mid 2012) 13" with i5 and 4 GB RAM, Mavericks Oh, one more question: Is it possible to share data (pictures, music etc.) between both operating systems, for example on a separate partition or are they both completely separated (for security reasons?)?
