So Apple has released an official working beta of a software program that will let users install Microsoft Windows XP on a Mac, and it's called Boot Camp.

I think Windows is a piece of trash but I would like to install it on my MacBook Pro so I can play games :). I won't connect the Windows boot partition to the internet though… and to think Windows users type credit card numbers in to their machines, it's seriously frightening.

Anyway, as usual I expected Apple to take a few shots at Microsoft Windows, and they didn't fail me :D …


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.

Word to the Wise

Windows running on a Mac is like Windows running on a PC. That means it’ll be subject to the same attacks that plague the Windows world. So be sure to keep it updated with the latest Microsoft Windows security fixes.

Telling it like it is.
