    I am taking some computer graphics courses on my study at the moment. Therefore I am gonna use my Mac for stuff like OpenGL and C++ programming. Moreover the courses use Visual Studio projects with exercise files etc. So my question is what you think would be the best option for me to use these files. Should I run Visual Studio using VMWare or would I be better off with booting into Windows with Bootcamp?

    A third option could probably be to use XCode, but since there are a lot of new stuff for me I am not so interested in trying to solve IDE problems that might show up because I use XCode instead of Visual Studio. I tried a bit, but didn't really get it to work.

    What would you advice me to do? :)

    Thanks in advance.

    Maybe this question is not too related with my original question, but what do I do if I install VMWare and Windows, activating windows, and afterwards decide to do a bootcamp installation?

    Will I be able to do the activation with the same CD-key ?

    I only have 1 key as I can download Windows XP SP2 through the university where I study (MS academic alliance I think it's called).
