|Running ESHA Products on a Mac|
Boot Camp http://www.apple.com/support/bootcamp/
This software is included in Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard" and Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" and makes it easy to install Windows on any Mac with an Intel processor. As a "dual-boot" solution, when you start your computer, you have the choice of launching either Mac OS X or Windows.
This solution is suitable for two kinds of people: (1) those who want to run Windows exclusively and want to do so on Apple hardware or (2) those who want to run Windows applications occasionally and do not mind restarting their computer to switch to a different operating system.
Parallels Desktop http://www.parallels.com/products/desktop/
VMware Fusion http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/
These are all types of "virtualization" software, which allow you to run Windows simultaneously with Mac OS X. In general, Windows runs as just another application in its own window. There is some communication between the two operating systems (e.g., copy and paste, mounting an OS X folder as a Windows drive letter). Unlike with Boot Camp, where the system requirements are no different from what you would otherwise need to run each operating system, with virtualization software you need decent system resources if you want reasonable performance.
This solution is suitable for people who want to run Mac OS X and Windows simultaneously and have the system resources to do so effectively.
