Coding on a Mac?

If I run windows xp 32bit with bootcamp and install the e sys and pdzdata or whatever on there will it work? Has anyone tried this. I have a MacBook and don't really want to buy another laptop just to code my X3...

Yep I used my MacBook Pro to code my X3. Just used Win7 in Parallels which worked fine.

If you don't want to spend money to virtualize there is also the Bootcamp solution (built-in apple to boot alternative OS like Win) or the free VirtualBox.
