So I was just thinking of purchasing a new computer and was actually considering buying a Mac computer and vice verca. The thing is I was just wondering if someone would be able to put a Windows xp operating system on a Mac computer? up until now my understanding was that there was an operating system tied in with mac computers and it was the only one you could use on that computer
If you do things right, then people won't know if you've done anything at all.

Keep in mind there are drawbacks to emulating Windows with bootcamp. If you're a gamer, stick with a Windows-based computer from the beginning. It will save you alot of hassle.
