Would you run Windows on a Mac?posted by MR WAVETHEORY at 4/07/2006 01:23:00 AM
This is not the first time that Apple has tried to create interoperability with Windows. Virtual PC has existed for years, and has never really taken off, even after being absorbed by Microsoft (and perhaps because of it).
So, when I read the announcement that Macs can now run windows, my first reaction is that this announcement is not going to spontaneously create a bunch of rich people over night. That really is the truth of it. Apple has a low market share in desktops because of its price. If it were serious about raising market share, it needs to cut prices. When the Mac mini drops from $599 to $199, you will know it is time to pounce. If Apple can achieve that goal, then Boot Camp will really be something - rather than a nice PR stunt.
