Alrighty so the short story is that I currently am a senior going to be a freshman at college in fall of 2009. I have been lucky enough to use macs all my life. I am going to be studying computer engineering technology. Thing is that all of the programs at the college are run on XP. Now I kinda know about boot camp but my question is... Does boot camp running XP or Vista have any set backs? Is it the SAME EXACT operating system that I would find on a dell or HP? other info: looking at a mbp love using the mac for creative keynote projects and using final cut along with iMovie.
