Hello, I am doing some research on Mac users who run Windows (through bootcamp, Vmware, parallels, or some other similar virtualization/PC boot software).

Does anyone know what % of mac owners run Windows on their macs? Any idea where I can find this info? I am specifically looking for running Windows on their macs, (I know there are many people who own both PC and Mac machines and that's not what I am looking for.)

That's a good question. I've not seen a survey that has looked at that issue. If anyone else has seen any data on this, let us know.

I do have it, and I know quite a few collegues how do as well, some programms are just to important to be left on your mac just because you don't "want" to install windows.

A quick search didn't get me any numbers though, but I am sure you have done that already. Post your results if you get any ;-)

I have it on mine and I know a few people who do as well, but a lot of Mac users I know are adverse to the idea :lol:

And a lot of those who do don't even see Windows because they run Parallels or VMware to in a mode that hides the Windows desktop and show only the app windows. And CrossOver doesn't use Windows at all to run Windows apps.
