OSNews, Generic OSes "Currently there are 2 solutions for Mac owners with an Intel chip for running Windows XP on their machine. First up is the solution from Apple called Boot Camp and secondly is the Virtual Machine (with Virtualization) from Parallels. So what's the difference? With Boot Camp Windows will be running 'natively', this means it will be running on the machine as if it was running on any regular PC from any manufacturer. This means full access to the CPU, Graphics and all other aspects. With Parallels Windows XP will be running on a 'Virtual Machine', this means that OS X will be running like normal with WinXP running inside a separate application, in effect two operating systems running at once."

"Well, Windows was on x86 first, but it seems to have stolen/been inspired by a lot of stuff Mac OS came up with...

I'd have to say Windows is the step child though, since Windows XP half-inherits a lot of stuff from DOS/Windows 3.1/95/98/ME, wheras Mac OS X seems to be VERY different from previous Mac operating systems. "
