Which Windows for my MacBook? [Solved/Closed]

- - Latest reply:  Biz - May 1, 2009 at 06:43 AM
Hi!
I just got the latest MacBook with 120 GB of space. Currently, there is only 76.66 free GB. I want to use either Windows XP or Windows Vista.
My question is which one would be more suitable in a dual-boot situation I'm little afraid that Vista might run too slowly.
Any advise?

If you are using dual boot then windows XP professional will be very good . Vista has confusinfg interface for dual boot . But the XP will support 100% your mac pc. It very useful for mixed combination

Yep! I agree... and I dont think Vista would work properly if you have Tiger on your comp but with Leopard it would work.

hi ,
I just got a MacBook about a month ago. I have vista. i like it. and i have a problem with messengers. on my old laptop, i had Windows Live Messenger. I loved it. and now i can't get it anymore. i have tried amsn, Microsoft Messenger and Mercury Messenger. none of them are the same as Windows Live Messenger. there is a webcam built into the laptop. but its no use if i can't use it! i really want windows live messenger on this computer. does anyone know how?
Try mercury messenger!! It take times to get use to the layout but it works just fine,,

Hi Folks,
Adium Messenger Works really good,no crashes,multi interface specially that you can use your google talk account, facebook chat and several other chat providers in the same time.
