i've got the full version windows 7 pro 64bit running on my OSX SL. Everything works fine except for the printing. When printing from certain print servers and can't find the drivers and then uses windows update to find them....and fails that's the only thing i've seen so far that i have issues with.
and @ JailbreakThis (the windows troll) No one on here said Macs were the best. We are all opened minded to different OS and don't live in a box like you. I personally enjoy windows and have had very little trouble with it. I just wanted a Mac just cuz...i wanted one and to learn more about them. So quit that wanna be gangster crap you're as foolish as they come and you can't think out of the box. Having a system that can handle more than just 1 OS makes you more versatile in any situation. Try to think technically (if your simple mind can) instead of just acting like the average ignorant and biased windows user.

I have 64-bit windows 7 working on my iMac (20-inch, Late 2006), except i cant get windows to recognize the bluetooth. Sucks because the only non-bluetooth mouse i have doesnt have a right-click (the old apple pro mouse).If I helped you out in any way, hit the Thanks Button.
iPhone? More like TyPhone

LOL im writing this on Windows 7 on my 06' iMac, and YES Windows does detect the drivers and updates no problem at all, but the sound driver doesn't and I am still soundless :/

I am a (partial) windows to mac covert, but only partially. The only reason that I purchased my MBP was for asthetic reasons. Aluminum is seksi.
Now I do use osx for all of my basic mobile non-professional needs - I.E web, personal email, itunes, iphone activities - but even for that, its only because OSX boots faster, which it should on a mac, lol.
I haven't really been blown away with how things "just work", in fact I'm quite pissed about 2 years ago when my woefully underclocked x1600 was giving me artifacts all the time. Apple's stance on the subject? "Buy a new 2500 machine, you cheapo!" So I did, and then a few weeks ago, Apple finally admits that the second 2500 dollar machine that I purchased from them has more GPU issues - Their response up until recently: "Buy a new 2500 machine, you cheapo!" Can anyone tell me why apple doesn't include a fan setting program for a solid piece of aluminum that cooks your lap until it endangers your ability to have children? Why, at the very least on Apple hardware, can I not sync my 3gs wirelessly? Why do I have to pay like 125 percent extra for the same ram I can buy on newegg?Why does apple wave the banner of creative freedom, and then slam the door on being creative with their ideas, even if we're not interested from profiting off it?
I love the asthetic appearance of mac laptops, and quite frankly, nothing else was able to convince me to make the switch. If a PC maker could come up with a design to sway me away from a MBP, I'd switch back, saving 1200 bucks on my purchase, gaining a few FPS in my benchmarks, and regaining the ability to easily upgrade my hardrive. All my home computers have been, and always will be, of the homebuilt PC variety. XBMC + 1080p PC Gaming + Unrestricted Intel Hardware = Win. I do not now, nor will I ever in the future, NEED osx in my life. At least any more than I would need Windows. Mytwocents.

And to further illustrate my point, I would have never even CONSIDERED a MBP, seksi or not, if I couldnt run windows natively. Without boot camp, apple would still be in the trendy but ultimately isolated corner of computing universe. The switch to intel hardware was necessary for them to even compete in the future. Cant sell 2000 dollar machines based on hardware that couldnt hold a candle to 1000 dollar PC machines in a performance benchmark test.
Too bad you didn't read the entire thing, because I was hoping that someone could give me a reason to acquiesce and retract my statements. Yours didn't do it.
Face it. Apple's machines are very well made. Enough so that people (like myself) who may be underwhelmed by other aspects of apple operation, will consider the purchase based on that factor alone. Does that make me a pretentious, image conscious toolbag? Maybe. But it doesnt make me an idiot. I just saw what I liked, and because I was/am fortunate enough to be able to afford to make a decision like that, I made the plunge. Please explain whay that is so wrong to you?
