I'm more curious right now about Phil's statement that "you can even run Linux or Windows (without a performance penalty and without dual-booting) if you need to" on an Intel MAC machine.

See http://www.parallels.com/en/products/desktop/ or http:// www.apple.com/macosx/features/bootcamp.html. I don't currently use either (I'm still using a PowerPC Mac), but several people I work with do, and they claim Parallels works well.



I'm looking for more input about running Windows software (Stata, S- Plus, SAS primarily) on the MAC as well as creating Word and PowerPoint files on the MAC that my Window's based client can read.

Run R instead of S-Plus whenever possible, and you can use it natively on OS X. Also, there are versions of Word and PowerPoint for OS X -- I don't really use these, but they seem to open all of the Word and PowerPoint files people send me OK (for that matter, so does OpenOffice).
