Apple's Boot Camp breaks down the barrier between the two rival systems

Digital Darkroom: Windows on your Mac?

Apple recently made a rather mind-blowing announcement: Intel-based Macs now permit loading and running Windows XP natively via Boot Camp software. Apple released a public beta version of the Boot Camp software and announced that its upcoming update to OS X, 10.5, or "Leopard" in its feline naming convention, will fully support a "dual boot" system. Leopard is due out in early 2007.

This isn't the first time Mac users have been able to run Windows. Emulation software has made this possible for years. However, in addition to being rather expensive, emulation software has the cumbersome and slow task of translating Windows code into something that Mac OS understands. And you're still essentially bound to one operating system or the other.

What's different is that in a dual boot configuration, you're not translating anything. You're actually running Windows on a Mac, as if it was designed for it. On startup, you select whether you want to run Windows or Mac OS. From there, it's just like running Windows on your PC.

This is a significant shift in the power struggle between Windows and Mac OS. Apple hopes to capitalize on the iPod user base, many of whom have been looking enviously at Apple computer hardware, but who have found it more practical to work with Windows for a variety of good reasons.

These potential customers can now run the popular Windows-based applications that aren't available on a Mac, while enjoying the sleek, high-performance hardware for which Apple has such a loyal following. And who knows—maybe they will poke around in Mac OS long enough to get hooked on the Apple way of computing.

What's more, it opens the door to the idea of Mac OS X running on non-Apple hardware. For the budget-minded consumer who might prefer OS X but would rather run it on a bargain PC, that reality may be out there. Rumors speculate that big names like Dell have been looking into such a possibility.

Ultimately, this is great news, whether you're a Windows or Mac fan, or even if you don't care either way. It's one less wall between you and what you want to do with your computer. It fosters greater competition, not only in terms of software development, but for hardware, too. And it opens the door for greater innovation and cross-platform integration.

We've lived with the either/or paradigm for so long that it may take some time to get used to choosing for ourselves what equipment and software we want to buy. I, for one, am willing to try.
