Apple throws down the gauntlet

Check it out. Apple just released a public beta of Boot Camp, which is software that lets you dual-boot your Intel Mac to Windows XP, complete with all drivers. Now there's no reason not to buy Mac hardware, because you can use the Windows boot to play games, and use the Mac boot for your real work.

But pay particular attention to the sidebar item "Word to the Wise" on that page:
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.
Windows is Windows. This is why many of us don't use Windows in the first place.
