I might be tempted to do this, but only for the very few toys that don’t run on Mac: OED, a few games, and some shite for work.
[quote=“BBC Tech”]Boot Camp, a new utility released by Apple, makes it easy for anybody to install Windows XP on to a new Mac.
It will not work on the older G5 and G4 Macs, but it opens a whole new world of compatibility to anybody with a Mac running one of the new Intel processors.
It is a bold move by Apple that has taken everybody by surprise, although looking back, the signs were there that it was going to happen ever since Apple announced the switch to Intel processors last June.
Boot Camp is currently available as a free trial, and it is scheduled to form part of Leopard, the next version of OS X operating system.
These are the first details we have heard on the new operating system, and more information is expected in August at Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference.
It means that Apple has had its Windows dual boot system in development for some time now.
Apple may have been forced into releasing Boot Camp this early by Jesus Lopez and Eric Wasserman.
The two pioneering software programmers succeeded in first installing a copy of Windows XP on an Intel Mac on 16 March.
