I have to have parallels because I need outlook to sync with my PDA/phone. Perhaps once the iphone comes out...

Anyway, what is the best Windows OS to run with parallels, XP or Vista (or would 2000 be better). I don't need features, I just want the one that is least likely to bog down the machine.

Mucho gracias!

XP would be your best bet as it uses fewer resources than Vista.

Though I personally prefer Vista's syncing program over ActiveSync in XP...

What are the primary differences when syncing?
