Ars Technica is one of my favorite online publications.  They consistently provide lightweight content that is intriguing and informative.  As someone who has gone through the process of installing Windows 7 Beta on a Macbook Pro, I wish I had read this article.  My overall experience of Windows 7 on the Mac is good.  The biggest areas that Apple needs to work on are driver optimizations and better ScrollPad integration.   Below is an excerpt from the article!

“Windows 7 may still be in beta, but it's good enough on a Mac. Whether you prefer a separate partition or a virtual machine, Ars helps you install Microsoft's latest OS on Apple's latest machines and points out some pitfalls along the way.”

Overall, they cover every scenario from Boot Camp to virtualization methods with Parallels and VMWare Fusion.  As usual, really beautiful screenshots accompany the article.
