Because it outdoes the poor way Apple offers Windows, without any
Good luck calling Sun and asking for support on your Windows

I do agree that boot camp isn't the right answer,
but Parallels clearly is...
An emulator? To run software that ought to be running natively?
Do try to keep up with the class.
