    Apple releases "Boot Camp" beta - run Windows XP naitively

    Here she is folks.


    "Apple posted a new product called "Boot Camp" Beta which will come standard with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). The new software allows users to dual-boot Mac OS X and Windows XP on the new Intel Macs.
    More and more people are buying and loving Macs. To make this choice simply irresistible, Apple will include technology in the next major release of Mac OS X, Leopard, that lets you install and run the Windows XP operating system on your Mac. Called Boot Camp (for now), you can download a public beta today.

    Windows XP is not included, so users will have to purchase it seperately. Current users need the latest version of Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and the latest firmware updates.

    There has been a lot of publicity surrounding the successful efforts in getting Windows to boot on Intel Macs by users, however, this represents the first time Apple has officially supported the option. Apple's previous stance has been one of indifference... in that they did not intend to facilitate this ability but would also not stand in the way. Apple appears to be embracing the concept now with an official solution.

    As previously mentioned, many feel that the ability to also boot Windows on Apple's latest Intel Macs will facilitate many users to switch to the Mac platform.

    Unlike previous solutions, it appears that Apple is providing Windows drivers for their Intel Mac hardware. This means, accelerated graphics and support for networking etc.. under Windows XP."
