Boot Me Up

It had been achieved independantly a few weeks back, but it was a painful procedure and there were missing drivers and such. As of today, Apple offers a way directly from them to do it pretty painlessly.

Boot Camp Public Beta

Once you’ve completed Boot Camp, simply hold down the option key at startup to choose between Mac OS X and Windows. (That’s the “alt” key for you longtime Windows users.) After starting up, your Mac runs Windows completely natively. Simply restart to come back to Mac.

(via practically every website I’ve looked at today)

Of course, what would be really awesome would be full virtualization (a la Virtual PC) but at close to 100% full speed. That will be awesome. And is probably going to be available before too long.

But this right here is good enough so that if Amy has some Windows thing she has to run next year for school or whatnot, we won’t need to make sure we have a seperate Windows machine for her.

Excellent. Not that I *want* to run Windows or anything, but having it as a quick and easy option when needed…. great. (Just have to dig up a XP SP2 disk somewhere… or buy one when the time comes.)
