    Hello friends!

    I’m on the verge of migrating from Windows to Mac, but I still have one (and only) concern.

    One of my best clients still uses a very old system that requires Internet Explorer with a Active X component.

    I’ve made my research and already know about Boot Campo, VM Ware Fusion, Paralles and Virtual Box, but I wanna know what you guys think about it.

    Which is the best method? Boot Camp or VM?
    Which is the best VM? (for my need)
    There’s any other way to run IE with active X on Mac?

    I run virtualbox to test some websites on IE6-9, it runs fine. I think any VM would work, depending on how demanding your uses in windows would be though perhaps bootcamp would be the best. But I can boot XP with virtualbox in under 30 seconds, no SSD, and it works good if you have enough RAM free :D
