Windows security on your Mac
Convergence has come to the software world. This week Apple pulled a feature planned for inclusion in the next generation of Mac OS X (code-named Leopard) and offered it up to the public like an early Christmas present. Boot Camp is a free software download that allows your Intel-based Mac to dual-boot into both Mac OS X 10.4.6 and Windows XP SP2 (and there are early reports that some have installed Linux, as well).
That's right, for the first time you don't have to choose between buying an Apple Mac or a Dell or a Gateway; the Apple Intel-based Macs give you operating system variety like never before. And early results suggest that running Windows-based apps on a Mac chassis could give you superior results (at least with graphics-intense apps, such as Photoshop), but Apple has acknowledged that not all Mac hardware is supported, including Bluetooth keyboards and mice.
