NDD must be thrilled.

Wonder how well it works?

Re: Intel Macs do the 'doz

Probably just as well as it works on white box PC's. I imagine the Boot Camp software is only a bootloader. Beyond that the new Intel Macs are the same arch as PC's.

It is cool. What isn't cool is that it's not in my budget to drop $2k on a laptop right now. However, things like this make it harder and harder to resist. Maybe I can reward myself if I don't crash this season?

Re: Intel Macs do the 'doz

I've had it running for several weeks now (see https://www.fireblades.org/forums/sho...&postcount=33). Other than the lack of EFI-based video drivers, it runs just fine.

I only need windows once in a while, so right now I only boot into it just to apply security and virus updates.

OOOOOPPPs...... just now noticed you were talking about Boot Camp. Yeah, this should be even better than the old boot loader deal.

Which brings up an interesting question. Will hackers be able to infect your 'doz and have it spread over to OS X when you reboot?

Nope. Completely different architectures. It would be like having windows infect a Linux box, but even more complicated, since Windows can't even see the Mac's HFS+ file system.

Re: Intel Macs do the 'doz

Can they gain acces through this Boot Camp thing? Mind you, I know nothing about it besides what's posted in the above link.

Ouch. How long until you can buy one with a shiny green Windows XP COA label attatched to the side of the box?

I don't have a Intel Mac yet but if I did I would only run the virus for two apps. Microsoft streets is nice and the only mapping software available on a Mac is poor in comparison. Also I could carry spare powercommander maps with me to the track. Otherwise I only use 'doz for games and while being paid.

Nope. The windows infrastructure doesn't even know about the MacOS installation.

Re: Intel Macs do the 'doz

Ouch... this is great. From the Apple Boot Camp page:

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.

Word to the Wise
Windows running on a Mac is like Windows running on a PC. That means itíll 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.
