Apple Bootcamp for Booting Windows

Just weeks after a $13,000 bounty was won by some enterprising hackers who managed to get Windows dual booting on an Intel Mac, Apple has come out and announced official support for dual booting. Hundreds of people are linking to this, so I’ll just point you at the Memeorandum conversation.

From Apple:

Boot Camp simplifies Windows installation on an Intel-based Mac by providing a simple graphical step-by-step assistant application to dynamically create a second partition on the hard drive for Windows, to burn a CD with all the necessary Windows drivers, and to install Windows from a Windows XP installation CD. After installation is complete, users can choose to run either Mac OS X or Windows when they restart their computer.
