Apple – 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.”
I keep saying things like, “This the last car I’m buying. I’ll park this one outside the nursing home years from now.” or, “This computer does everything I need, I won’t buy another one.” Yeah, right. I am so not able to resist the lure of new toys, especially a Mac that runs Windows natively. No more of the agony of Windows PC, where you wait long minutes just to watch a URL you typed appear one-letter-at-a-time in the browser location bar.
I thought one laptop, one set of wires on my desk, one machine with Mac and Virtual PC was just it: the most and the best. I thought that right up until this minute. Now, I’m thinking, I WANT THAT! It will be an interesting exercise in self-discipline, fiscal responsibility, and adult understanding of my real needs to see how long it takes me to buy one.
Now, about that Toyota I’m driving till the end of time . . .
