Actually, they just make the Win desktop transparent. Try layering Win and 
Mac application windows and you will see that you can't stack them like 
MacApp, WinApp, MacApp, etc.

Windows XP works best on an NTFS partition, and without the file size 
limit of less than 2GB. You can still share your Mac files to the PC, but 
the NTFS BootCamp partition is read-only by default. Now, if you want to 
remove this restriction, simply install MacFuse and the NTFS-3G 
filesystem. This will make NTFS Read/Writable by OS X. Simply install both 
of these and reboot. done.
