MacDrive 6

If you own one of the latest Intel Macs you have (almost) the best of both worlds, a Mac that dual boots into either MacOSX or Windows XP. The downside is that to have a shared area that both operating systems can read from and write to, you need to format the PC partition as FAT32. This has repercussions for size of partition, speed and security.

Alternatively, you can format your PC partition as NTFS (with all the advantages that implies) and then install a product called Macdrive6 on your NTFS partition. This will then give you access to the Mac partition from the XP partition. An excellent solution and a real killer application.

You are rapidly running out of reasons not to have a Macbook Pro

Marge: Homer, is this how you pictured married life?
Homer: Yeah, pretty much, except we drove around in a van solving mysteries.
