    Windows programs?
    Through a simple search, I was unable to find the answer I was looking for...
    What's the best way to run windows program on a mac, and I mean the actual OSX interface, but a windows program. Any advice? Thanks.

    MacBook
    To run a Windows program you need Windows. To install Windows on a Mac, you have your choices of BootCamp or Parallels for Intel Macs and Virtual PC for PPC Macs.
