The system I built some five or six years ago is dying, and my desire to build computers has plummeted to zero over the years. I’m getting a Mac Pro (the desktop variety) very soon, with the intention of a) seeing what its nifty bundled software is capable of doing, and b) running Boot Camp and installing my copy of Windows XP Pro.
I haven’t used Macs for years and years, and am wondering about a few things:
What is the Mac equivilient of seeing what items are running when your OS boots? For instance, in Windows, I can use msconfig, regedit, or the services snap-in in msc to tell Windows what programs/services it should or shouldn’t run at bootup. Is a Mac similar in concept? Do I even need to worry?
How well does Boot Camp run XP Pro SP3?
If a game is compatible with either Windows or Mac (e.g., World of Warcraft), which OS typically runs it better?
ARE YOU OKAY!?
Thanks in advnace for any responses.
