A painting of me

Apple Bootcamp

    6 April 2006, evening time

Windows running on a Mac is like Windows running on a PC. That means it’ll be subject to the same attacks that plague the Windows world. So be sure to keep it updated with the latest Microsoft Windows security fixes.

What the blood? Now, I am sure there are plenty of Mac users looking forward to playing all sorts of video games on thier Macs now; I can’t imagine another good reason to run Windows XP on a Mac. Apple’s stock jumped at the news this is going to be built into Mac OS X 10.5. Strange days lay ahead my friend.



  1. Another great reason is getting the likes of me to switch over. Now that I know I can switch into Windows if need be (to develop C#, Delphi), I’m definitely getting a new mac. Of course…I don’t do much dev anymore so I was prolly gonna get one anyway. It’s high time to retire the Plus and the LC520

    Gotta wait till June and see if the new iBook and MacBook Thin rumours pan out.

  2. As long as people switch to macs thats what counts. I imagine after people use a mac for a bit and don’t totally freak out they will be more inclined to stick with mac os then to waste time dual booting windows and mac os.

  3. John Gruber on Boot Camp. It's a long article, and it is quite good, but really doesn't have the same punch as Cabel Saser playing Half-Life 2 on his iMac. Half-Life 2 looks so damn crazy.

  4. So this is the first thing you are doing when you return from the Antipodes? ;)

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
