    I'm just about to embark upon self study training of the Comptia A qualification, I'm currently using a Macbook Pro and have been using OSX for a couple of years now. Basically I need advice on what Windows OS I should install and start using to familiarise myself with the windows way, whether this be XP, 7 etc.

    Ideally after the A+ I will be looking for a Helpdesk role and start the N+.

    I have experience of XP from before I bought an Apple, and intend on buying a desktop PC in the coming months(have an old one I can tinker with for the A+).

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I would probably just Bootcamp Windows 7 and go with that.

    Thats what I was thinking, silly as it may sound, just wanted to know for sure before I part with the reddies.

    Thank you
