In this article for News.com Daniel A. Begun pits Apple’s Boot Camp against the agile rival Parallels Desktop at running Windows XP:

Apple’s own Boot Camp Public Beta allows you to install Windows XP SP2 onto an Intel Mac, giving you a dual-boot system. Parallels takes a slightly different approach with its Parallels Desktop for Mac, a virtual machine application. Instead of Boot Camp’s dual-boot approach, Parallels Desktop runs Windows XP directly on the Mac OS desktop (in what Parallels calls “near-native performance”)–allowing you to run both OSs simultaneously and switch back and forth seamlessly.
