    i use windows on my iMac, it works perfect no problems, but like john said, if you went to Mac stay on Mac, better off. I use windows on my Mac, because i do alot of things on windows that i can't on Mac.

    I thought the point of buying a Mac was to get AWAY from Windows? Maybe it's just me and most of the loyal Mac users here...

    the point of a mac is to enjoy using it, theres nothing wrong with windows, for some users its necesarry to use windows.

    I used Windows on my MacBook Pro but quickly remembered why I switched. It's just a bad operating system.

    How to install Boot Camp and thus, Windows XP on your Intel Mac:

    Click on this LINK

    Follow the easy to read instructions, in english, then enjoy the best of both worlds.

    If you have any questions, click on this link

    Easy enough. And if you don't like Windows, don't take the time to post a question asking how to get it on your mac.

    You are entering a another world of security issues that could affect your Mac if not carefull. For me, I don't even need it, so I am going to keep my Mac a Mac, and not hop to the Windows side of the yard.
    It's all good.

    Windows security issues will not affect Mac OSX whatsoever. Mac OS X doesn't even know that windows exists on the same computer. The security issue with window's is something easily addressable and seems more and more like a scare tactic these days.

    Not true, say that you were to get a virus on the Windows partition (a security issue), and the virus completely ruins the whole Hard Drive. Guess what, you just lost everything, even the Mac partition.
    It's all good.

    Even on Windows, this kind of aggressive Virus is extremely rare, nearly non-existant.
    In the beginning days of computer viruses, this kind (or the file erasing kind) was much more common, as they were developped by really good programmers...nowadays every 12year old with some VisualBasic experience can write a virus, which is an annoyance, but one that can destroy an entire system, I haven't heard from since quite a long time.
