The following is a description of Computing Harmony: How To Seamlessly Blend Windows and OS X, as per the authors:
PCs and Macs living together more than ever.
The Mac vs. PC debate, which has gone on for decades now, is a false dichotomy. There’s long been an impression that it’s either one or the other, and the idea that these two platforms could not play nice together only reinforced that. When Apple’s computers used PowerPC processors instead of Intel’s products, there was truth to this, but no longer.
All of the examples you will find in this 16 page guide are applicable to Windows 7 and Mac OS X Lion. Many of the tricks will also work with Windows Vista and Mac OS X Snow Leopard, and some of them will work in even older versions of each operating system.
Computing Harmony: How To Seamlessly Blend Windows and OS X is a 16-page eBook by the folks at MakeUseOf. I took a quick glance and its a pretty basic guide on how to run Windows and Mac OS X on the same computer. If you need the very basics on the topic of running Windows and Mac OS X on one computer, this might be a useful read; otherwise, save yourself the effort.
