    Lightbulb Bootcamp for Mac OS X iBook ( not g4 )
    Alright, I have a mac os x version 10.4.3 and I really don't like having a mac because it causes alot of problems when I go to d/l programs that I need. I was going to d/l Bootcamp off the internet and see what happens with it then possible install windows completly on this. Is this a good idea? What kind of futures does bootcamp hold in store for me? Will wondows work correctly on this computer since they have completly different archetectures??

    bootcamp, as stated in apples website, is for Intel chips only. so it wont work on your, or any, ibook.

    what exact problems do you have when you download programs?

    Specs:
    iMac late 2007 10.11.b4, iMac 2008 10.10.5, Macbook2007 10.7.5, Mac Mini 10.7.5, iPhone 3GS Note 8!!
    This is one of the new Intel Macs? If not, neither bootcamp nor Windows will run on it. Just being sure this is an Intel Mac as the iMac is either a G3 or G4.

    What kind of programs and applications are you having troubles with?

    As was already pointed out, BootCamp and Parallels will do nothing for you and your machine. If you absolutely must run Windows, then your only real option is Virtual PC. It would appear though, that you are trying to simply download .exe files and other Windows applications. If you are, and you need to run that many Windows applications and programs then a Mac is not your best option. I would suggest getting a Windows-based computer for your situation, if indeed the situation I described is correct.
