Question Running "exe" files - 10-06-2010, 02:25 AM

I have 2 Macs. I was wondering what the best way to run Window files is? Specifically "exe" files.

[Dell Mini 10v (1011) White--BIOS A06--NBBM Ver.0.8.4--10.6.3 Retail Disk--Mac OSX SL Ver. 10.6.8--128 GB Intel SSD--2GB of RAM--6 Cell Battery]

Hard to say what's the "best way". I use VMWare, virtualbox is free. Bootcamp is Apple's recommendation.

akajack covered two options: run Windows in a virtual machine, or dual-boot Windows.

Here's one more: run .exe files via Wine. Wine ain't perfect, though.
