Boot Camp Anyone?

In OS on 12 April, 2006 at 7:32 am

No, not that type of boot camp, is the all new catch phrase in Mac world.

Boot camp is a software that is going to be in the next release of Mac OS X, Leopard, which will let Mac user boot into their *favourite* oops, sorry, should be *disgusted* OS, Microsoft Windows XP.  So Mac user can now enjoy another different world.

So if Mac OS X is so good why do Mac users need Windows XP anyway?  All needs should be taken care of by Mac OS X, isn’t it?

Gaming might be one aspect that make Mac users cling on to Windows XP.  I believe most games still run faster on Windows than Mac, this is because most game developer still base their game on Windows and just port it over to Mac.  Also a lot of games are still Windows only, developers just don’t see why they need to take care of the smaller market, time might be better spent at making the next big version of the game.

As a side note, don’t you think Apple should not charge its user for all these minor refresh of Mac OS X?  Tiger and Leopard sound to me like just mere service packs.
