    I'm contemplating getting a new iMac to replace my Macbook. I used Crossover to run UO, and I can't run UO Cartographer and what not. However, as I understand it, Bootcamp can run any program because it's like booting windows on your mac. Can anyone tell me what they do on their mac to run UO and how nice it runs? Looking at getting a 500 MB hard drive with 4 GB ram. Any help would be nice. =]

    Crossover is Wine and can therefore run UO, UOA, and Vent.

    Bootcamp simply boots your Mac in to windows just like any other desktop so everything works including UOC and the Enhanced Client, but you must purchase Windows to do so.

    For instructions on how to install under crossover on the mac, see my post:

    PM me if you would like more detail.
