Default Dual OS

Is there a way to run two OS's (XP and OSX) seamlessly, so you don't have to reboot to switch, yet performance is not sacrificed?

You don't mean simultaneously do you? I doubt there's a way to switch without having to reboot..

Well, parallels sets up a virtual machine for the OS to run in, sooo... performance is reduced. I use Parallels, but only to test new Linux distros. But, It is possible if your system is fast enough. Good luck!

Well, if I'm thinking about the Quad Power Mac, I think it will be. Plus, I'll only use Parallels for media conversion software, or any other software I can't get on Mac, so...

Parallels should be OK in that case. Yeah, go ahead, parallels is a good solution!

Yeah... might be for word processing as well. I forgot to mention mp3 tag-editing as well. And OSX can run it, right?
