Apple is a Hardware company: this move is going to net them BILLONS of cash.EFI and BIOS
Macs use an ultra-modern industry standard technology called EFI to handle booting. Sadly, Windows XP, and even the upcoming Vista, are stuck in the 1980s with old-fashioned BIOS. But with Boot Camp, the Mac can operate smoothly in both centuries.
Agreed. I find it interesting but not important to me. I've been using Macs since the late 80s and I've never found that I missed anything I needed or wanted.

Sheesh... you complain and complain about Apple's keynotes, you bash Jobs' business decisions, you bitch that Apple doesn't patch security holes fast enough... yet you say Mac OS X is your "OS of choice" -- and now look at you: jumping up and down and screaming with excitement like a giddy 3rd-grader because you can now put the buggiest, most insecure operating system in the universe on your Mac computers.
Very, very ironic to say the least.
