    Crossover vs Parallels ??
    anyone had trouble with newest version of crossover?? It seems buggy to me. It seems like Parallels is a much better choice to run window apps then crossover.

    I've tried using Crossover and quickly uninstalled it. It does have its use for certain applications such as Office for Windows but it's not suited to run applications which need faster graphics. The only reason I tried Crossover was that it was free right before the elections.

    Parallels or Fusion is a better choice, although if you intend on running games in Windows, creating a Boot Camp partition and running Windows natively may be best.

    Regards.

    If you need to use a wide variety of Windows apps then I suggest Parallels or Fusion. I use Crossover simply to run Office 2007 as I prefer it to Mac Office and need to ensure I have 100% compatibility as I transfer docs to and from work.
    Oh...and only pretty girls use Macs...
