Apple has released software that will allow Windows to run on Intel-based Mac hardware, called Boot Camp. It creates a second partition and includes all the drivers needed for Windows XP to run the the Mac. This move makes buying an Apple even more appealing to those who are thinking about the switch, including myself. Now all I need is the money to do it.
Boot Camp is now in Beta, and will be included in the next version of Mac OS X.
“Apple has no desire or plan to sell or support Windows, but many customers have expressed their interest to run Windows on Apple’s superior hardware now that we use Intel processors,” said Apple Senior Vice President of Worldwide Product Marketing Philip Schiller. “We think Boot Camp makes the Mac even more appealing to Windows users considering making the switch.”
