'[PIC] Mac users: MPLAB with Parallels Desktop and '

Robert Welch (from Microchip) has reported the following.
"I've got one of the older Macbook Pros using the Intel Processor.
Since the release prior to V3.0, Parallels has allowed me to use
ALL USB development tools while running XP Home Edition,
updated to SP2. I've used: Real ICE, ICD2, Pickit1, Pickit2,
ICD2 LE, PM3, and the ICE4000."

So Mac users (normally are willing to pay more to think
different: Parallel Desktop and Windows XP SP2 are not that
expensive anyway compared to a new Mac) should have a good
solution now.

While it's a technically cool way to solve a problem, it's not a very viable
one. If I want to run Windows, I install Windows, on a x86 based machine.
But it's not the route for me. I use Mac as a Mac, and I have Linux as well.

Microchip got themselves so snared in the web of Microsoft, that MPlab can't
be used outside that environment. Their loss.

There are other tools, especially for Linux. That way, I haven't had the
need to delve into PIC development with Mac.

Maybe not the most constructive reply, but it felt good getting it off the
chest.

Bah.  $80 for Parallels, and $200 for WXP Home (retail);  You might  
as well buy a whole separate PC that you control with VCP.  Maybe a  
slightly older one that still has useful bits like serial and  
parallel ports!

So maybe the free bootcamp and reduced-price $129 Vista Home
Premium will help.

Or $40 for parallels and cheap upgrades since you were an early-
adopter, and $99 for "OEM" Windows XP, after buying the Mac some more  
RAM -- since all the retailer has to do is "sell you hardware" to show  
that you're building a machine to qualify to sell you their OEM  
versions.

Wasn't my idea... it was the retailer's...
