No excuse for not buying a Mac

Posted on Wed 05 April 2006

You've been dying of envy to buy a Mac to have these so cool machines in your hands and use this so cool operating system and all these so cool applications, but always be refrained because you needed some Windows-only "business" apps?

No more reason for not buying a Mac: Apple now officially provides a dual-boot system so that you can run MacOS (most of the time) and Windows (rarely) on a shiny Mac!

There are interesting remarks and warnings in the sidebar:

EFI and BIOS: Macs use an ultra-modern industry standard technology called EFI to handle booting. Sadly, Windows XP, and even the upcoming Vista, are stuck in the 1980s with old-fashioned BIOS. But with Boot Camp, the Mac can operate smoothly in both centuries.

and the best is this one:

Word to the Wise: Windows running on a Mac is like Windows running on a PC. That means it’ll be subject to the same attacks that plague the Windows world. So be sure to keep it updated with the latest Microsoft Windows security fixes.
