Windows Basic or Premium?
Feb 8, 2009

Hey Mac folks,

I am in the process of setting up my Macbook to run Windows. I haven't done it before so I have several questions.

The first one is, do I buy Windows Vista Basic or Premium? (I'm assuming Vista is the way to go, despite the reported problems I've read about.) I don't know what Premium provides that Basic doesn't, and I don't know if it'll matter.

I want to run a GIS (geographic infor systems) software app on it.

I've got Bootcamp, and I've got Parallels. I have little experience with either, though I have booted up into Windows using Bootcamp. Is running Parallels worth the learning curve?

Thanks for the assistance!
