I have had my Mac for about a year now, knew it has BootCamp, knew what it was for but I never saw a need for it. Then I started finding programs I wanted to use for developing addons and websites but nothing came close on a Mac as well I play games to relax and one game I wanted, I couldn't play Sim City, the other is Rift. I decided yesterday morning to install BootCamp and use a free copy of Windows 8. I love having 2 operating systems. The question I ask is should I be concerned about resources being used? If I repartitioned the hard drive with my Mac on it to have more space would that erase Windows 8? Or would I be best to repartition once I have bought a full copy? Thanks to all those Mac owns for reading and hopefully replying. Don't get me wrong, I love Mac OSX but I couldn't keep going without certain programs such as WS_FTP. I can at least update files and upload them on Windows side and do the same on Mac side but I still like WS_FTP for just uploading new files to install.
