    I'm planning sooner or later to get windows for my mac using bootcamp but don;t know which? Vista or XP? and which ones out of all those versions. I'll be basically using it for games like sims 3.;D

    Easy, none. ;)

    XP has better performance, but Vista plays well on the MBP. In fact, the MBP still smokes most of the other Pee-Cee laptops in performance with Vista, so you're good to go.

    I wonder if anyone can get Windows 3.1 to run on Bootcamp, at least for shitz and gigglez. :)

    Haha, I had Windows 98 running in VMware the other day. It's deliciously disgusting!

    XP Pro SP3 works well. I run it in Fusion with nary a problem. Bootcamp should net similar results.

    If you want to walk on the wild side I would recommend Windows ME.

    Depends on the specs of your Mac and which model.

    Hahahaha.
    Nice one.
    Or, maybe Windows NT... it was mainly used as the first Windows OS with security but it sucked nadds by far!
