Never read about crossover before, does it do what it says on the tin and lets u install windows based programs onto OSX? whats the difference between this and parralles?
if i want to run a 3D Studio Max am i better to use crossover for bootcamp?

If your looking to run MOST windows software you will need either Parallels or Boot Camp or as some are doing both... With Parallels you will need to install Windows into your computer and then you can run most windows programs quite well while also running OS X programs at the same time. The latest version of Parallels which is 3120 works very well and in its coheasion mode allows windows and osx going at the same time very well.
With Boot Camp you will get better ability to run windows games because you are dual booting either windows or os x so when you boot windows you are actually running windows, but Paralles gives you very good ability to run both at the same time.
Pick your poison...Mac Pro Intel 2.66 - 4 Gigs Ram - 10.6.1 - 30" Apple Monitor
