Well, actually bootcamp DOES emulate some parts of a PC such as the BIOS (Macs use EFI) and such. Also all hardware drivers are written by Apple so you "may" experience problems with Microphones or the like though i doubt it.

Quote: There's a nifty app called Parallels lets you run XP and OSX at same time. Kinda like VPC.

Indeed. Parrallels can be useful seeming as it doesn't require a reboot, HOWEVER it does not support any 3d applications as far as i recall (Games) and furthermore it costs money which Bootcamp doesn't. On a different note it runs noticeably slower than Bootcamp.
