Intel Chips May — Or May Not — Allow A WinMac
“Apple Computer’s announcement of new Macs based on processors from Intel raises an interesting question: Since both the Mac and Windows operating systems now run on Intel-based hardware, shouldn’t it be easy to run both on the same computer?
“That simple question deserves a simple answer. But there isn’t one–at least not right now. Reaching the nirvana of running the two most popular desktop operating systems on one machine is a lot harder than you might expect.”
