Apple has released beta freeware to let Intel-based Macs run Windows XP.
This is a brilliant marketing ploy. They even managed a small swipe at Microsoft in the instructions: 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.
Maybe John C. Dvorak wasn't so crazy after all. Maybe that's why Apple didn't invite him to their 30th birthday party.
