Apple/Mac/VirtualPC

I currently am transitioning from PC to Mac and wanted to verify which Windows emulation works best or at all with TW:
VirtualPC
Parallels
Boot Camp
Other (?)

And which, if more than one, is the best fit? This will be on Intel/mac systems.

Any issues with the choices? (I currently run both PC & Mac, but am looking forward to the day I run the Mac only...)

Thanks

Here is my list of "best to use":
1. Boot camp
2. Parallels
And way down you find:
34.VirtualPC

I run TW mostly ind Parallels because then I can use TW without restarting...

I use parallels (win xp image) on a macbook Pro and it works great for me. - Stitching and producing tour is fast enough for me

On the PC side I run:
TW 2.0
Panoweaver 5.0
FTP client

On the Mac side :
Photoshop
Aperture
Adobe Lightroom

I also use Virtuedesktops to switch between my 6 os/x desktops (Mail, Windows, graphic Design, Music, Main and Internet)

All files on a Terrastation file server which is shared between all my PC's and my Mac

I use parallels on an imac with xp and it works great. You can instantly switch between operating systems without re-booting. I run TW 1.3 and PW 4.0 along with Photoshop and Illustrator in windows. Saving all the files in a desktop folder located on both desktops. Quick and easy.
