Boot Camp

Macs do Windows. Well at least that’s what Boot Camp, a new beta application from Apple is supposed to allow users to do. The long awaited ability to run Windows XP on an Intel-based Mac.

I was speaking with a colleague on how I thought that this might end up helping Microsoft more in the long run, especially since most Windows XP based computers typically don’t have the same attractive form factor or design of Apple hardware. The counter-argument posed by my colleague was that the attractions are typically based on the advantages one is seeking. So if the form factor or design of Apple hardware is not a primary factor then my statement has no validity. Anyways, I’m not in a position to try Boot Camp, since inspite of my primary computer being a Power Mac G5 – it is not using an Intel processor.

Does anyone know if it’s possible to mount an NTFS partition? I’m really skeptical on whether it’ll be possible to share files between the two operating systems. Suggestions?
