As described in my earlier post, I'm currently switching from my G4 PowerBook to a new MacBook 13" 2.16 GHz.

I'll have to use Windows parallel to OS X (plan to do that with Parallels Desktop) and would like to know what you recommend:
Windows XP or Windows Vista?

Vista should be better in security issues, however it should also consume much more ressources and thus run slower ... is that right?

What's your experience?

    Hi Martin,

    personally I favour XP over Vista (at least for now and the near future), because as you mentioned Vista a much more hungrier than XP and also because there are still a lot of applications which do not work correctly or at all in Vista.
