Yes, for 2 years.
Parallels works quite well for moderate use, but if you use Boot Camp,  
you'll have the best Windows computer around as well.
I like the ability to switch back and forth as needed, hence use  
Parallels at work on a MacBook, but use Boot Camp on my home iMac  
(very rarely)
and strongly agree that Vista is to be avoided at all costs....

Either way, you'll need a full install copy of WinXP
