Apple unveils official support for booting Windows
Last month a team of hackers known only by the names of Narf and Blanka successfully won a user-run contest that offered up US$13,000 for the first person who could sucessfully manipulate Windows XP and Apple's new Intel hardware so that users could install the former onto the later. While the contest was technically "won," the process was probably far too complicated for the average user......at full speed, I would add. (You could do VirtualPC on Macs before, but it was always a few steps behind in speed.)
As I said in my linkstack yesterday, this seems like a game-changing move. With a Mac mini at <$1000, you can run just about anything.
The Unofficial Apple Weblog: The Real Reason Behind Apple's Boot Camp
...in most schools and large organizations ... computer labs and classrooms are designated either a Mac classroom or a Windows classroom, by necessity.I'm always a little dubious of such grand claims, but then again Apple's made a mighty interesting play here. This doesn't even include the development work some people are doing on virtualization on the Intel Macs (i.e. you wouldn't even have to reboot to use both, Windows could run inside/at-the-same-time-as OS X).
TUAW also reminds us that Apple has shipped Windows-capable Macs before, long long ago, but for a lot of extra $$: Windows on a Mac: This isn't the first time
The DOS Compatibility Card was released for the Powermac 6100 series way back in 1995. It actually shipped with an installable version of Windows (3.1) and MS-DOS 6.22. They featured a i80486 processor that cooked along at an astounding 33MHz.Macintosh 1 comment(s)
