Well, the rumors came true. Apple announced a program called Boot Camp this morning that will let you boot windows (officially) on a new Intel Macintosh. It was Apple’s birthday last Saturday and they turned 30 years old. I’d be willing to bet that if they’d released this on their birthday (April 1st) nobody would have believed it.
I think this is a good move for Apple. They continue to claim they’re a hardware company. I think giving the customer more options (another OS) is definitely a good way to go. If you’re even the slightest bit interested in what Apple has to offer, you no longer have to worry if you’ll still be able to run your existing Windows apps. If Apple is looking for switchers this is a great way to get people to taste OS X when they normally wouldn’t have done so. It’ll be interesting to see how Apple furthers this feature in their upcoming OS 10.5.
