Well first thing, I would install Windows XP only for games. That's it. For everything else, Tiger owns.

Weird...i thought because the EXE files work differently because its a different processor type, that sort of stuff wouldn't work.

Anyway, it'll be more ground breaking if MAC users can use Windows, since all the programs would be open to them.

PC's having a mac OS wouldn't really be a big thing to most people as it allows you to do less.

I haven't tried Linux to be honest with you...

Does that run PC/Mac programs then?
