Apple BootcampApple has released Boot Camp 1.1 Beta today which appears to target some more compatibility issues when running Windows XP. Here is what they say they changed:

  • Support for the latest Intel-based Macintosh computers
  • Easier partitioning using presets for popular sizes
  • Ability to install Windows XP on any internal disk
  • iSight camera support
  • Support for built-in microphones
  • Right-click when pressing the right-hand Apple key on Apple keyboards
  • Improved Apple keyboard support including Delete, PrintScreen, NumLock, and ScrollLock keys

I don’t have a Mac to test this out on but I do have to admit that screenshots make it look extremely easy to use. It would be nice to run Mac OS X and Windows XP on the same machine but a hunch tells me that we shouldn’t expect anything similar to this from Microsoft. Performance-wise I wonder how well Windows XP runs on a Mac computer?
