    I want to install Windows onto my Macbook.

    Processor: 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Memory: 2GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

    And I've looked around and people say that Windows doesn't run that smooth on Macbooks but I really could do with using it for a few things so I want to know which would work best with my specs.

    So basically, should I install vista or xp?

    Vista is pretty, and has some nice upgrades, but is a resource hog compared to XP, although it should run fine with your specs. Additionally, IMO, from what I've read on these forums, it sounds like XP may be less buggy on a Mac.

    What programs do you want to run under Windows?
