Boot Camp - Apple simplifies Windows XP on Intel Macs
Authored by: whenders0n on Apr 07, '06 10:33:54AM
While I think it's true that no one in their right mind would prefer a virtualized/dual boot solution to software compatibility issues, it is undeniable that such technology will lower the urgency and intensity (though perhaps not the volume) of the demand. This is especially true for games where the marketability time period is often almost as short as the time to port it, and GUI is not an issue, but it is also true for many other applications, especially large-scale corporate type software products (where code-base is large and most users are locked into windows). This move could definitely increase the amount of people demanding OS X native apps, but I would be surprised if it didn't make most people less outspoken about their wants if they can just run it in Windows.

People always want to believe the worst, I guess.
