    Parallels or VMware Fusion for game
    Hi,

    I have this small helicopter simulation that I use, but it's windows only, I hate to have to boot back and forth just to run it. I was wondering which is better, parallels or vmware? Or is there a way to convert that program to run on mac osx natively?

    Neither. Simulators do not run well or at all using virtual software. You need full access to 3D acceleration and graphics. The only way to achieve that is to use Boot Camp to create a partition and install Windows.

    If you wish to use a simulator for OS X, try X-Plane.

    Regards.

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
