Parallels Desktop

So far I've tried testing with the Windows that came with Virtual PC  
6 (XP), but now that M$ has acquired that program, I'm planning to  
steer clear of it in the future. Since I'm mostly interested in  
running other window's apps for my architectural practice, I'm hoping  
that Cross Over Mac will fill the bill. The $60 price tag is pretty  
enticing as well. For the foreseeable future, regarding testing of  
Rev apps, I'll probably enlist the aid of some of my crazy friends  
whom I've never been able to convert. (Just expressing my personal  
opinion.) It would be nice if Boot Camp does the job, but I don't  
think it precludes the need to buy Windows; just makes everything  
more seamless.
