I now have even more incentive to buy an Intel Mac…


More and more people are buying and loving Macs. To make this choice simply irresistible, Apple will include technology in the next major release of Mac OS X, Leopard, that lets you install and run the Windows XP operating system on your Mac. Called Boot Camp (for now), you can download a public beta today.

As elegant as it gets
Boot Camp lets you install Windows XP without moving your Mac data, though you will need to bring your own copy to the table, as Apple Computer does not sell or support Microsoft Windows.(1) Boot Camp will burn a CD of all the required drivers for Windows so you don’t have to scrounge around the Internet looking for them.

Damn. One of the things that I really wanted before migrating to an Intel Mac was something like this, so that I could run Windows XP when necessary. Now that it’s available… heh. I’ll still be waiting, though, as I don’t need to upgrade my laptop for a while and my main PC is powerful enough for the time being. Oh, well… at least I know the option is there. :-)
