(1) I don't have to give over a partition to Windows and don't have to reboot back and forth. (2) With my windows xp cd, I can install windows with vmware fusion totally independently, and if I want to remove Windows either permanently or to start over for some reason I can do that easily and independently. (3) I can transfer between windows and the mac either with shared folders or using ssh in cygwin; actually I think there are windows ssh clients but I like cygwin since I'm also a linux user. (4) When I backup my Mac installation to an external drive with superduper, which makes a fully bootable and usable clone of my mac installation, it also backs up my vmware fusion Windows installation, so if anything goes wrong with my Windows I could reboot to the backup and use windows--and of course macosx--on that.
I find uses for both Macosx and Windows--and linux for that matter--and it's a plus to be able to use all your tools in whatever OSes you choose to the max. Btw besides windoweyes and the jaws demo I also use system access and that's how I do most of my scanning though I'm considering buying Abby finereader.
