Wow, they just totally owned themselves. Why would ANYBODY buy a mac to run XP when a PC can run it so much better? LOL! The only reason people were buying MACs was to get away from the microsoft operating system...

Because OSX can do everything Windows XP can do except play games, with none of the instability, spyware, and virus issues. For the ever-shrinking possibility that there's a piece of software that does something that the Mac OS can't do, well, voila, dual booting has arrived.

Face it, when your only alternative OS is linux, the average PC user has nowhere to turn. Now Intel mac users will get the best of both worlds.

Like ''Bigval'' said lol MAC just Killed themselves..Everyone bought a MAC to run the MAC OS. If you can get Windows on it theres no point in even calling it a MAC lol.

You guys sound ignorant. Apple is still a company, and anyone who doesn't want an ugly, gaudy looking PC can get a Mac. This is a great business decision by Apple because people will always see that OS X icon when they boot up. By the way, Apple doesn't support Windows, as Boot Camp is beta software. And please, it's not MAC, it's Mac.

Its a good move to get more people to go MAC but the problem is that they mayaswel not be called MAC at the same time if you get me as they now Incorporate Windows. And IMO a Mac doesnt look any better to a normal PC in my eyes i mean ok they are abit tidier being all one unit but thats about it.

I am going to type this in caps. A MAC IS A COMPUTER, NOT AN OPERATING SYSTEM OR A PACKAGE OF THE TWO. Should Dell stop calling their computers Dimentions just because they throw Linux on there? Does a Dimention run Dell Dimention OS? No. It does not. It runs Windows.
