Today I decided to try Parallels on the Mac. So, now I have two ways to run XP, if I must. Parallels running XP as a virtual machine locally on my MacBook Pro (where it runs windows apps faster than most PCs) on the left, and Remote Desktop for the Mac, logged in and running my office PC remotely. My main reason for doing it is to free myself from my last PC at home. At this point, I only need it in order to interface with Sony’s e-Reader software, which is only for the PC.
