so, it finally happened. apple announced boot camp, which will allow dual-booting mac/win on the intel mac machines. it seems like apple is going to go hardcore after the PC market.. and they'll get it, too. leopard will come in time for the christmas shopping season, whereas vista won't be anywhere near ready. guess who's going to be put front-and-center in the stores this winter? once people start using macs, they're not going to go back.

also, quote from the boot camp page: "Macs use an ultra-modern industry standard technology called EFI to handle booting. Sadly, Windows XP, and even the upcoming Vista, are stuck in the 1980s with old-fashioned BIOS. But with Boot Camp, the Mac can operate smoothly in both centuries." :)

That is simply not true. Seriously. The 60% rewrite story is a total and complete fabrication.

Fair enough.. I never believed the 60% rewrite story, but they're definitely not making the shopping season this year.
