    Re: Apple updates Boot Camp to support Windows 10

    I tried boot camp... It works, but is an either/or solution.

    I found it better to run windows in a VM (I use VirtualBox) and then both are available. Works very well with dual monitors, one showing Mac, the other showing windows.

    Connecting external peripherals to the VM can be tricky. For software installation it can be easier to create an ISO image and mount that on the VM virtual DVD and run it from that.

    Or just install Windows natively and kick OS X into touch

    You'd actually have an OS that worked with the majority of apps available.

    or you could use parallels which can use the bootcamp install as it's base for it's vm...
    I can't vouch for it as I've never used it, don't have a need for mac's when the key software I use is only available on windows

    Re: Apple updates Boot Camp to support Windows 10

    Is this news? I've been running Win10 on my iMac for months. I guess the fact that it's officially supported rather than just using Win7/8 drivers?

    To be honest I only really use Windows for games now (and Visio). Everything else I need (including an increasing number of games) are available on OSX.

    I shelled out for VMware Fusion over Virtualbox as it's a bit prettier to look at (and I got a cheap upgrade license having owned it since VMware Fusion 3), and can be used for basic control over ESX servers.
