    "Well, this thread literally has nothing to do with Mount Washington"

    Yep, it's right up there with cat poop, but I suppose there is a cat on Mount Washington.

    "Like arguing Ford vs Chevy."

    True.

    Picky, picky, picky. That is why this is called the General Discussion area.

    Boot Camp doesn't run Windows on top of OSX. It splits the hard drive and runs Windows natively, by itself. It sets up a dual boot where you can pick which OS you want to boot up. It works great for folks who prefer one OS over the other but need certain aspects of the other OS, like my Mac users who prefer to use Outlook with our Exchange server or SPSS for stats. They can boot into Windows for those and use Mac for everything else. We have Windows users who like the graphics/photo/video features of Mac OSX. They boot into Mac OSX to use those features and then go back to Windows for everything else. Setup is basically simple once you start the Boot Camp Assistant. It's actually easier and more streamlined than installing a fresh copy of Windows on a Dell machine.

    Just to keep this somewhat on topic, what OS do they use at the Observatory?

    Mostly Windows. Maybe some Linux here and there.

    I think I actually had problems with Parallels not Boot Camp.

    Interesting that a discussion of Windows would wind up with a reference to cat poop in it. Not that I'm saying anything here . Just to be clear, I'm a Windows user and always have been. Never owned a Mac (even though when the first Mac was announced I was working for an Apple development company and went to the rollout). Just because I use and develop on Windows doesn't mean that I have to like it though and that it shouldn't be compared to cat poop.

    Default Actually...

    I wasn't comparing Windows to cat poop, I was comparing threads that have nothing to do with MW. But, now that you mention it...

    Only Macs are sold built? I wonder what Mikey Dell sells then? Last I checked, no fruit in his boxes.
