    XP or Vista with Parallels?
    I have to have parallels because I need outlook to sync with my PDA/phone. Perhaps once the iphone comes out...

    Anyway, what is the best Windows OS to run with parallels, XP or Vista (or would 2000 be better). I don't need features, I just want the one that is least likely to bog down the machine.

    Mucho gracias!

    XP would be your best bet as it uses fewer resources than Vista.

    Though I personally prefer Vista's syncing program over ActiveSync in XP...

    What are the primary differences when syncing?
