Wrong Support/Unholy Alliance: THE APPLE-TREE IN THE WINDOW
Windows Vista is now usable on Intel-based Apple computers, following the release of the latest version of Boot Camp. (from here)
Although Boot Camp — an application that lets users with Intel-based Macs install Windows alongside Mac OS X — is still in beta, version 1.2 is the first to support Vista installations.
The next full release of Mac OS X, Leopard, will contain a fully-fledged version of Boot Camp. Rumours had recently been circulating that Leopard was to be held back until October, beyond its official target release date of Q2 2007, because of Vista’s compatibility issues with Boot Camp.
Err, that’s odd. Last I read about these guys “collaborating” they were suing one another of copying each other’s GUIs because people started noticing the similarities between the Windows XP “Luna” GUI and the one for Apple’s OSX. This one of those “unholy alliances” between Microsoft and some other company we keep on hearing of, a couple of years back it was with them and Sun Microsystems. This puts to mind those ads on Youtube to do with the two men, each representing a different type of computer/OS, you know the one, “Hi, I’m a PC.” “Hi, I’m a Mac.” After all the “reviews” on Vista, you’d be wondering the CEOs of these rightful companies are thinking.
