My buddy Jim has posted 5 or so articles on his blog, Current Word about Boot Camp and the possibilities of Apple running Windows XP.
As a user and programmer of both systems, I find this all to be a non-event. Most Mac users don’t want to run Windows XP … and. vice versa. I don’t think this event is worth noting or getting riled up about. There will not be this mass migration to Windows XP by Apple users. There may be a migration to Apple hardware by some PC users, but I doubt it. Apple hardware costs a lot more than PC hardware since the OS and Applications are bundled.
I am sure of this though:
- More Windows users could become Mac users
- OS X will not easily run on commodity PC hardware
The bottom line… yeah this was released but… hmm. moving along…
