Watch out there are all ready Window/Linux
fussion like systems, but now Linux has opened
up 2 Virtualization companies helping them run
Multi OS without even rebooting, So now
not only like before when ever you install
something in Linux and it does not need to reboot
to run it, and also they are getting the same for
using diffrent OS without the hassals of rebooting,
or slow downs :)
(Basically you can run Multi OS at the same
screen and the same time, this is not like
an emulator where it can be slow or anything no,
real deal. Hear!)

here are the 2 project/comps.

VirtualIron

Sponsored by:
Intel, IBM, Novell, AMD,
Redhat, Cisco Systems, Sun Microsystems
and etc. etc...

all those Sponsors are also working on thier
own Virtualization projects. The future holds many doors. :yes:

LOL, Mac for gaming lol,
Doom 3 (closer to the next gen. of
future gaming). No Offense but, Mac for gaming
hmm, not sure if I see that happing alot. ;)
and Doom 3 is best play on Linux OS, don't
belive me ask Linuxworld or idsoftware (creators of quake & doom),
it is awsome that the graphics and everything runs awsome and a
little bit better than the Windows version B)
Doom 3 Linux version.
idsoftware and Atari are pretty good
partners of Linux gamers fan and are
all ways posting
and working on it, I don't see
much Macintosh gaming, If they would
make Steam (Valve/Turtlesoft made) for
Mac or may be EA games like Battlefield 2
than maybe, but not likly Mac will take over
the Gaming world. Oh yeah, Blizzard
well they work for all, soo.

If they get the new mac to run windows vista, i'll buy a mac even if it costs more. From the articles i read, XP runs faster on the apple computers than on normal PCs, what a shame.

its not a shame...its hardware that makes it faster and those are just rumors I have yet to see real bench marks..from what I see hardwarewise any core duo device could do the same


The big news yes, good.
But, What will Microsoft do?? ;)

nothing I beleive. microsoft gets another hardware supplier for their software

So Apple Boot Camp,
well good but will be great in
the long run. ;)

in the long run..geeks like us will dual boot...normal people will choose one OS and stay with it. Serously there is really no big deal. Apple will get more sale from those who want the stylish apple hardware to run xp and MS gets more sales from macs running windows.

Its fun but it isn't so exiting to some users, Boot Camp users have begun reporting serious crashes.
Over on the Apple.com discussion boards, a number of people are reporting that Boot Camp--Apple's new software that allows Intel-based Mac owners to install Windows XP--is causing some serious problems. To be precise, the common crisis is that after partitioning their hard drives and installing Windows XP--which seems to work fine--these people find they can no longer boot back into OS X.... So, all the early reports had it that Boot Camp was working fine for most people. But be prepared for a new round of trouble reports.

Finally Vista (Build 5270) on Intell Mac :woot: :woot: :devil:
The title is already a mouthful as it is but that's what some people are speculating. AirmanPika posted on the OSx86 Project forums yesterday (OSX Project86) that he managed to get a beta copy of Windows Vista working on his Intel Mac.
How did he do it? Using Boot Camp and according to Cringley: " Microsoft LOVES Boot Camp and I am sure they'll say that shortly. After all, Boot Camp sells more copies of Windows without threatening more sophisticated products like Microsoft's own Virtual PC.
One reason why Microsoft isn't surprised by Boot Camp is because Microsoft has been working with Apple to make sure that Windows Vista runs well on Intel Macs. Apple will support Vista dual boot, though I don't know if they will become a Vista OEM, but I can't imagine why they wouldn't if it will help sales." He goes on to predict that soon, we'll all be able to buy OS X that wil happily chug along on a Celeron (or AMD). What is the world coming to?

No, you cannot install Mac OS on PCs. And for crying out loud, don't call it MAC. MAC is the name of the unique identifying number given to your computer on a wireless network.
