Dueling Platforms

09.01.30 - Mark

Someone has figured out how to duel boot a MacBookPro (I still think it's a silly name) with OS X and Windows XP. They also piecked up $14,000 for the work. link

If Apple releases a 12" Intel 'book of any variety before I fix my iBook, I'll be giving some serious thought into moving up to a new system rather than a repair.

Hey Mark, This is Jered from summer camp '04. I worked on the shotgun range and was really annoying :-)

I just stumbled across your blog and saw this post. One thing about the dual boot is that it is only a very basic version of XP (no drivers) just FYI

later,
Jered

Hey, Jered.

That might be the case now, but getting it to boot was the hard part. Now that that's been accomplished and a project established, community built drivers and better documentation aren't far away. The Open Source Movement is a great thing.

Besides, you've not going to need to extract every bit of functionality out of Windows (not there's that much to begin with) when you're only a few key strokes away from booting into OS X.
