Thank's for sharing this tidbit of information. It is certainly good news
for all of us. I, for one, would welcome this advanced functionality : a
machine with a split personality. And, if I might add, the ideal would be
the ability to have *both* OS dynamically loaded in RAM at the same time ;
why stop at one or the other? I personally use both a Mac and a PC in my
everyday work and switch between them on a need basis. So, booting in either
XP or OSX is a fantastic idea, but dynamically switching between the two
environments, in real time, well, would be an even better idea.
This being said, I concur with David Pogue that a dual-booting capability
would help bring more Macs to more desktops. If you ask me, it was to some
The other way around doesn't require waiting for extra
software. I have seen plain PCs with dual boot systems
already. Whether that's legal is another thing. Steve Jobs
can't be that naive, this is going to happen and I expect he
intends to compete on OS level. Either Apple takes the lead in
that or it is crushed between Windows and other Linux
spin-offs later on. Steve has a lot of things to mind
meanwhile and his interests are widely spread, he can play va
banque with what may no longer be the real cash cow of Apple.
The desktop computer is just a small part of the ICT business
these days, it would be suicide to concentrate on keeping a
legend alive. Either OS X gets the market share it deserves or
it becomes a legend. The industrial design department can be
sold to Gucci or Porsche and still continue to sketch nice
iPod concepts, the rest of Apple should continue on what made
money over the last years.
