New User Needs Help

Ok, I am a old windows user and just bought my first mac and want to do more mobile dev. I want to so android and iOS. I have some android experience and want to start there. I have a few questions:

  1. I am on also having eclipse installed. Is there a problem getting them to share avd's and sdk's?
  2. Should I install xamarin in maxosx or win8 (bootcamp)?
  3. When I try starting an avd in macosx, it hangs at the android boot animation. Any suggestions?

    1. There are not problems sharing AVDs neither are there problems having Eclipse installed as well.
    2. You decide, either works.
    3. How long did you wait? The Android Emulator is SLOW.

    You can speed up the Android emulator by using the x86 emulator images. The emulator almost becomes tolerable then.
