As you've probably heard about now, Apple has made a cool piece of software available called 'Boot Camp'. Of course I had to sit down and try it out immediately. This is what I find. 20 Comments Zac 2006-04-05 11:49:19 As great as solitaire is, I am really wondering about the other great games, namely the 3D ones. Can I boot Half-Life 2 on this thing, for example. Audio Crackles On Playback. Games like this are honestly the only reason I would want Windows, and I do not have the funds to buy a dedicated gaming machine, so I am really curious to see how well this works.

Apr 06, 2007 Because I'm Vietnamese so i need to install a Vietnamese keyboard software. Because Apple both designs and sells the. Can i install Windows XP for iBook G3.
I think making this option available will be a good thing for the Mac platform and for developers like you. Once people use XP and OS X on the same machine, the advantages of OS X will become very apparent to new Mac users. As for the difficulty in selling OS X-only software to owners of dual-boot Macs, I don't think it will be that bad.
Mac software will run on a Mac. Plus, it's pretty clear that something with a Mac OS label is made for OS X, while the Windows logo is associated with Windows. I could be underestimating the difficulty, but if anything, I think this development will help small developers like Boinx.
Oliver Breidenbach 2006-04-05 12:23:44 Zac, unfortunately, I do not have any 3D games on hand. I will probably get some on friday, but can't make promises. Oliver Breidenbach 2006-04-05 12:25:07 Erik, anything that sells more Macs helps.:-) MacLemon 2006-04-05 13:49:19 Incredible laughs. Hilarious article, please make a second part of that one!:-) I tried that on two 20' iMacs today. Atc Program New York.
One wouldn't let me update it's firmware and now refuses to install Mac OS X on the internal HD. I guess this is the iMacs revenge for the tried insult. The other one runs fine under Mac OS X and works with XP.
I tried the Halo and Unreal Tournament 2004 Demos which ran flawless. Even F.E.A.R. Was playable, though I'm to scared of first-person-shooters to walk around a corner.
*jk* I also could boot from an Ubuntu 5.10 x86 install CD. Didn't have time to install yet, but it would boot. Makes me wonder about the current Vista pre-alphas and maybe even OpenSolaris.
