Hello, Ive been using mac for almost a year now, I still use windows (now and again) but my main computer is my macbook, hooked up to my 22" widescreen of course

There is almost nothing it cant do! except run a virtual machine (got 4gb of ram on the way for that though!) But im trying to run Microsoft sharepoint designer and i can't get anything to run it

Ive tried using crossover! Anyone know any other good apps like that?


ty!

You're probably not going to be satisfied running Sharepoint Designer from a VM or Crossover. It's best to use Boot Camp and run it natively from Windows XP or Vista. The reason is because you want all the graphical power and 3D ability you can get from native Windows rather then settle on using virtual machine drivers or the emulation which Crossover provides.

Regards.
