    anyone also using MS Money on Mac?
    how you did it and why you use which virtualization software?

    I really need to run my Money data but can't afford to switch between BootCamp

    I'm using it in Parallels under Windows XP. It works just fine. Setup was fairly straightforward.

    I haven't tried Fusion.

    Can anyone running Parallels or Fusion tell me if you can stilll print to a pdf in OS X from a Windows program?

    Really need the feature. All the methods of printing to pdf in Windows is less than elegant.

    Should be able to work. Your printers can be passed on to Parallels.

    Worst case, you can always open the PDF file in OSX Preview. Just drag and drop from your Windows directly to OSX, either to the Preview app or directly to the Printer itself.

    That's my dilemma also when I purchased my Macbook and I don't want to launch WinXP (thru virtualization) just for MS Money (that's too much work for me, hahaha).

    Now I'm using Moneydance. It's not as nice as MS Money but it does everything I need.

    The best part is I get to access my financial records whether I'm using my Macbook, Windows or Ubuntu computers. It has cross-platform compatibility.

    I'm not sure if printing to PDF (converting a file to PDF using Mac OSX print function) is possible from Windows using Parallels. But I'll give it a go when I set it up. I haven't had time to do it yet.

    I have not seen this option. It's not built in but you can try this.

    You should have at least 2GB of RAM installed. Mine boots up in 2 minutes. By the way, I don't have many programs that run at start up as well.
