I have recently purchased my first Mac and just started to get to grips with it. Currently I am using my old PC for any CAD work or basic drawing work. I am quite reliant on CAD light and Microsoft Project for my work and am toying with loading Vista on my Mac to support this software. I have two questions, what alternatives are there for the Mac (must be compatible with colleagues PC's) and if not how how do I go about loading and running Vista on my Mac? Oh, and can I run OSX and Vista at the same time on one machine?
QUOTE Thanks

Using VMware Fusion, Parallels or Virtual Box, you can run Vista, XP or 7 inside your OSX host operating system.

I know Vectorworks is a good CAD program that will run in OSX. But it's pricey!
