    Not to be picky but you could've differentiated 32- and 64-bit versions, at least for Vista and 7.

    i know but I was leaning towards the users with newer computers and im guessing most of those are using 64-bit. But if anyone would like to specify you are welcome to do so.

    Cheers.

    XP Pro simply because Parallels uses my BC partition.

    I like Win7 but haven't gotten around to seeing how well it integrates with Parallels.

    It's OK if you install Win7 as an image, but you can't point to the Boot Camp partition through Parallels like you can if it's Vista or XP.

    tinyXP :D

    It's super fast!! :cool:

    And it uses minimal memory for VMware Fusion.

    If you use tinyXP through BC can you play games on it? or is it cut down so much that it doesnt even support that?

    You certainly can. I have Steam running on it with Team Fortress 2 and Unreal Tournament.

    I have tried all three versions, and I must say that I like Windows 7 or XP the best. I get better frame rates on these OSes and the computer just seems to respond better to commands. Plus 7 is free right now.
