Macs do Windows, too


Now since Apple officially supports Windows on their Intel based machines I really think about getting one of them. If they manage to run both operating systems concurrently (like they could with Intels Vanderpool technology)… THAT would be the killer argument.

The thing is: It’s so not Apple. Why would they support the operating system they always bashed?

    Actually, they officially _do not_ support Windows. This is all totally unsupported. But they do put out 80 MB of drivers for Windows. We could call this “support” however.

    well.. of course Apple does NOT support you when you have issues with Windows…but Apple DOES support Windows on their hardware – of course they do not support their own software…

    I have one here now at home (MacMini DualCore) and it works like a charm (OSX10.4.6 and WINXP SP2), Bootcamp delivers all needed drivers for XP and an extra controlpanel for switching the systembootdrive. Its fast enough for most tasks and plays even HD-MovieContent. Looks very nice and is with its silence an ideal device for putting near the tv in your living room. With Frontrow or the other available mediacenter software and an eyetv dvb-t device its a nice and easy solution for your everyday needs in digital life… 🙂 If OSX 10.5 delivers true virtualization for seemless switching it would be nearly perfect.
