Hi Everyone: This is my first time posting to a Mac message board. I am a fairly new Mac user and unfortunately, I still have to use Windows to run a few programs that I just cannot find in the Mac Os. Here is what I'd like to do with Windows on the Mac and I would like to get feedback from people that have experience with these programs to help me determine the best Virtual software to use. I will be buying a new Mac Mini for the following tasks. I will need to run a radio station automation software program called Raduga. It is only available in the Windows OS right now. I will also be using Microsoft Streets and Trips since there does not seem to be a suitable equivalent to it in Mac. I will also be using a Davis weather station software program called Weatherlink to upload weather data each half hour to a website. Raduga automation software and Weatherlink will need to run continuously and simultaneously at times. Raduga will run 24/7 while Weatherlink will also run 24/7 but it will only upload data to the website for a few seconds every half hour. But the software will run constantly just like Raduga. Should I use VMWare, Parallels or Boot Camp? And which editions of Windows XP are compatible with each? I've read that certain editions of Windows OS will not work with Virtual software programs like these. Speed is important since the segues between audio files will need to be seamless especially when overlapping songs. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
