Big economies to rule! ECB drafted a new plan giving more voting power to states like Germany

On Thursday the European Central Bank detailed plans for altering the way the euro zone governors vote from next year, constraining smaller economies' potential influence in favour of big states, like Germany. The step was incentivised by the swelling of the euro zone to 19 countries with Lithuania's accession next year, and will divide national central bank governors into groups of smaller and larger economies to ensure efficient decision making.

2) rEFIt is only a bootmanager, you still need the bootcamp solution.

Bootcamp cons: you have to reboot to switch OS, if you trade or develop much you won't use OSX.

3-4) heavy resource consumption but stable solutions.

5) never tried

I use wine. A windows emulator. With winebottler its an easy installation

Winebottler sounds like a good option. Is it stable?

Win slows down over time. Hope mac is more stable.

No stability issues on my side (mac pro, snow leo) The only thing i noticed is that emulated programs use the the windows shortcuts for copy/paste.

A well i forgot to add that you might cannot use the latest build trough wine. i use still 226
