Virtual box or Boot camp
Lately I tried getting the mac version of visual studio for a project i want to work on,Unfortunately I couldn't.I now wanted to install windows on my mac,so i can run the VS.I am a little bit confused, should I run Boot camp and create a partition or use virtual box?:Lips-Are-Sealed:

If you use Virtualbox:
- Windows runs at the same time as OS X, in a window
- Windows runs in "fake" hardware and cannot utilize everything in your Mac

If you use Boot Camp:
- Windows runs as a standalone, dedicated operating system
- Windows has access to all of your Mac's hardware

If you have the space, install it on both. VBox is free as is Bootcamp. Try them for a week and then delete whichever one doesn't work well enough.
