Apple Allows XP to Coexist on Intel-Macs

Boot Camp patch makes it legit      05/04/06
We’ve all heard about various dubious processes to allow XP to boot on the new Intel-Macs. Some hardy souls have even given it a go – but it’s a bit hit and miss from what I hear, sometimes taking several attempts to stick. Well whaddya know? Apple just announced a patch called Boot Camp which enables for the first time ever, Intel powered Macs to legitimately boot into either Windows XP or its own OS X operating system. The time limited public beta, which is available for download from Apple, is not supported at present, but in it’s final form will feature as part of it’s forthcoming 10.5 Leopard release, offering as yet undisclosed additional functionality. This is a bold move on Apples part and opens up a whole new market of potential users for Apple hardware. In fact, Apples stock has risen almost 6 percent since the announcement. Personally, I cant wait to see if we can run our video editing system on the Mac, save me lugging the brick as we call our current ‘portable’ setup.
