Only the beginning
Authored by: deh2k on Apr 15, '06 09:46:39AM

I think Windows compatibility was one of the main reasons for Apple's switch to x86 CPUs. Bootcamp lets you use your Mac as a PC. Parallels/VMWare/Virtual PC let you run a virtual PC inside MacOS. WINE/Crossover let you run Windows applications without any Windows at all. Each succeeding technology is more Mac-like and less PC-like, and I think that most here will agree that the more Mac-like the better. Apple wants all types of solutions to be available so the user can choose which they need. They all make it so that a potential Mac purchaser does not have to be concerned about compatibility with the rest of the world.
