    [news=http://img306.imageshack.us/img306/5117/apple8xo.gif]SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Apple Computer Inc. shares climbed almost 10% Wednesday after the company unveiled software that will let its newest Macintosh computers run Microsoft Corp.'s Windows operating system, a watershed decision that may help boost its share of the PC market.


    The new software product, called Boot Camp, allows users of Macintosh machines that run on Intel Corp.-made chips to choose between Apple's own operating system and Windows XP to run their PCs.
    It's the first time in more than a decade that Apple has released a product that lets its computers run Windows, the most widely used PC operating system by far. Making its new Intel-based Macs compatible with Microsoft's software could help Apple expand its single-digit share of the PC market.

    I wonder if Vista support is on the way ? All the Mac gamers are probably doing hand stands . You need a Xp disk and boot camp .

    Mac needs to make an official OSx86 to keep things fair. OSX for PC computers would make them "more" money..."more" publicity. It's a win-win situation. Bill Gates doesn't "own" PC architecture, because Apple is already starting to use it somewhat.

    Hopefully it'll actually run good. The reason most people like mac is because it's generally faster than pc and doesn't freeze, but now apple's basically changing the mac into a pc.
