Apple Boot Camp
Although we don't usually talk about Apple here at Hot Hardware, there is a stunning new development with Mac systems today that certainly warrants our attention. Apple has officially released a public beta of a new piece of software called "Boot Camp" which will allow all Intel-based Macs to seamlessly dual-boot with Windows XP and Windows Vista. Although some homebrewed software allows people to dual-boot, Apple's official attempt does not require any hacking or accomodations for the Mac's EFI. You just install the Boot Camp software and everything just works. So what does this all mean? You can finally consider a Mac as a viable gaming platform and can have the strength of OS X with the gaming flexibility of Windows!
