    I'm thinking games right off the bat , that way Mac users don't have to wait for ports . I posted a thread in News aswell but seem to have more feedback in this forum . It's a win win for Apple and Microsoft , you need the Mac hardware and O/S and a copy of Win xp to run the dual boot .

    Now all thats needed is the Virus writers to complete the circle .
    There's a writeup of someone who's tried it here :

    I was reading a review about the dual boot capabulity a couple of days ago, and they were saying that mac was claiming that this system would let them break into the corporate world more, and this review would was saying that the only way that this tecnology will actually make it into the corperate world is in publishing houses and such where Macs are seen as a "necessary evil" due to mac's dominace in the graphics world, would be able to switch to windows when they aren't running Mac specific software. it's gotta be bad for mac when they realise that you can now run windows on a mac, and the reply is "good, now I'm not forced to use mac all the time"
    Plan for the worst, hope for the best

    I don't get why Mac's are better in graphics.

    Windows opens photoshop in like 8 seconds and Mac on a PC Intel machine takes about 30-40 seconds.

    Maybe its becuase im not using a true mac.
