In a suprisingly pragmatic move, Apple has “announced support for dual booting”:http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2006/apr/05bootcamp.html the new Intel Macs into Windows. They’ve updated the system firmware to support booting WindowsXP, and they are also providing Windows drivers for the core peripherals. This comes just a few weeks after the hacking community managed to accomplish the “same thing on their own”:http://onmac.net/.
I suspect that this could be very popular with gamers, especially once the tower Intel Macs are released. It’ll give them the chance to have a nice groovy apple multimedia experience without having to spring for a separate PC to have access to the large numbers of Windows-only games.
