YES- Your eyes are not deceiving you. That is the apple task bar on top and the vista task bar on bottom.

Side by side you'll notice:

Apple Safari Browser & Microsoft Internet Explorer
Leopard's System Preferences & Vista's Control Panel

How well is that working for you? I've been thinking of doing it on my MBP.

Hows the Windows performance?

Why not do the other way around? Leopard has better work flow and more useful eye candies than vista in my opinion. Oh and do you know there's a program that allow mac os to natively read and write windows NTFS partition? It's make by Paragon.

The other way around? I'm having OS X emulate vista with VMWare fusion. I have that program by Paragon, its great!

Vista performance is pretty good. Enough to load up important apps and do what you need to do. I use almost entirely OS X applications when I have them, vista only when I need to.

Oh i see it, I thought you are using vista as base os because I wasn't aware that you hide your dock. I just upgraded to 8gb ram for vmware, its great but I can't game on it...
Btw, can you post your xbench score, and can you do one without the disk bench?
