Apple: Boot Camp released!

For those who have slept under a stone for the last 48 hours or so: Apple just released a beta version of their Apple Boot Camp software. This comprises an easy installer for Windows XP on Intel based Mac hardware, turning your Mac in a dual bootable Mac/WinXP machine.

I can hardly wait for upcoming intel iBook versions, so I can finally do away with that crappy Windoze box I keep for running just one single accounting program…

You definitely should read Daring Fireball: Windows: The New Classic: “And this points to the rather delicious conclusion that Apple is casting Windows, including Vista, as the new Classic”

Even better on the short term: Parallels releases a beta of their Virtualization Solution for Intel-powered Macs – which promises running any windows, without the dual booting penalty.
