Hi, proud lifelong Mac user here. Got my first Mac SE in 1987. I was hoping to go to my grave never needing to buy Windows or a PC. However.... Later this week I have no choice but to start using Yardi, a Windows-only program for property management. So, the Windows-less streak is over. I'm still not going to get a PC. But I will have to buy a (gulp) Windows OS to load onto my 2008 aluminum MacBook (2.4 Ghz Core 2 Duo, 4 GB RAM, 250 MB HD). Two questions: 1. Has anybody ever used Yardi on a Mac? What solution did you adopt: A) BootCamp, or B) a virtualization program (such as Parallels or VMware Fusion), C) both, or D) something else entirely? 2. Since the odds of someone else having the same issue reading this and posting an answer in the next day or so are pretty slim, here's a more general question: Do I have a greater chance of success with Windows 7 or Windows XP? (Nobody seems to like Vista.) I hate even the idea of buying a Windows program, but since I must, then I'd rather get the one that I can get the best use out of. To rephrase it: Should I get Windows 7 or XP? (This one goes out to everyone, whether you've used Yardi or not.) Yes, since I'm getting Windows anyway, I might like to play the odd Window-based game or so (though this is a very minor factor). And if anybody has ever used Yardi on a Mac, their advice would be most appreciated!
