WOW! Apple has released a new (beta) product called Boot Camp. And, no – this is 4 days too late to be an April Fool’s joke. A while back, there was a $13,000 bounty for the first person (or group) to get Windows XP to install on an Intel Mac. Well, that was accomplished, and the bootloader was posted on OnMac.net. Well, after the release of Apple Mac OS X 10.4.6, it appears as if Apple had something under it’s sleeve too…Boot Camp:

More and more people are buying and loving Macs. To make this choice simply irresistible, Apple will include technology in the next major release of Mac OS X, Leopard, that lets you install and run the Windows XP operating system on your Mac. Called Boot Camp (for now), you can download a public beta today.

Boot Camp will even burn a CD with all of the Mac-specific drivers for Windows. This includes graphics, networking, audio, airport, bluetooth, eject key, and brightness control. This requires Mac OS X 10.4.6 and the latest firmware update. Visit http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ to get the updates.
