Default OS Question

I'm not sure if this belongs here, but whatever:

Is it possible to run Mac OS X 10 and Windows XP on the same machine? I want to have Windows on my machine for gaming, and Mac for design programs, etc. How would I run these two operating systems on one machine? Buy multiple hard drives? Or what? Please respond.

to simply answer this question no. but if you're determined to do it you can try an emulator. what apps are you trying to run on the mac? i've been able to efficiently use the apps that most ppl want for mac on my pc. emulators arent really the best and will cause you a lot more trouble than gain in the end.

btw wrong place to post this please look before you post

well, the programs are as follows:

Flash MX
Photoshop
Illustrator
3D Studio Max
Image Ready
Dreamweaver

and others similiar to that line up. I realize I can run them on a PC, but I just like the feel and use of a Mac better.

Yes. You can run Windows and Mac OS X on the same machine.

There.
