    How well does Valve's Source system run on Windows XP via Boot Camp?

    Pretty damn well... I play it :)

    Got half-life 2 and Episode One. All runs on high rez with high textures. Very pleasing to look at.

    I second that. On my 17" iMac with ATI X1600, Half Life 2 runs on 1440x900 with all settings maxed except anti-aliazing, and framerate is way beyond just playable. Nice coding, Valve!

    I've never had any of the Valve games crash on me. Just some odd sound/graphics issues that are well known, not serious though.

    I've somehow managed to fix the problems by reinstalling everything barring XP itself and HL2. No crashes at all! It is so very well coded. Runs on my 2ghz P4 in very high settings too.
