Hi all

Please advice, I have been using Windows XP Pro and instead of upgrading to windows vista I want to buy a MacBook http://www.apple.com/macbook/macbook.html. Whats bugging me is that I have been using Visual Studio 2005 Development enviroment, will I be able to do some programming in MacBook? or there is development software for it?

Your re-ply will be greatly appreciated.

Switcher forums?

The only way to use visual studios is through boot camp or parallels and everything you creat will of course be windows based. There is development software. There's a developer/programmer forum if you would have scrolled down further. Also Apple's website has a whole development community that you can become a member of for free.

So you will have options for software development if you switch.
