Sam, the best Windows PC I've found yet is my MacBook Pro in Bootcamp.
I spoke too soon even in my dream world, I can't use Windows 8. So a Mac Pro is not yet an option.From Ars:"Some people were worried that the new Mac Pro's custom design would prevent it from getting Boot Camp support, but Apple does ship it with the Boot Camp utility (though Apple only offers drivers for Windows 8 and newer)."
VMWare is your friend.
This is all daydreaming...but for a corporate solution, I wouldn't use OS X either. And I wouldn't hobble a Xeon install with a virtualizer intermediary
A majority of corporate servers at my old job were virtualized (multiple "servers" running on the same physical machine, not any cross platform stuff necessarily although there was a mix of Windows and Linux). You really aren't hobbling much of anything with virtualization.
Ted, the problem is that parallels and other clients don't have nearly as little overhead as say ESXi or Hyper-V
If I'm buying a high-end Xeon system for scientific analysis, I don't want to reduce performance with a virtualizer.And that's setting aside the Sisyphean task of getting a system's security controls approved with an OS running in an OS. A nominal Windows system is more than enough pain.
Made for each other:
Curtains, for reals:http://sploid.gizmodo.com/these-guys-filled-a-new-mac-pro-with-c4-explosives-and-1583549891?utm_campaign=socialflow_gizmodo_twitter&utm_source=gizmodo_twitter&utm_medium=socialflowI got halfway through that before I remembered the rule: If you watch a snuff film you are complicit in the crime. There would be no snuff films without knuckleheads to watch them. So, watch at your own peril.
