Why Boot Camp doesn't mean the end of software for Macs

Several readers in the comments to my earlier post are already proclaiming that the sky is indeed falling, predicting that Boot Camp means that Adobe and every other Software manufacturer out there will stop "porting" their products to OS X. This will not happen for two very easy to see...

Apple to PC Manufacturers and Windows: It's on!

OMG I cannot stop giggling with glee over Scott's Boot Camp post. Apple has just thrown down a pretty major gauntlet to all the current PC manufacturers. I mean, now, thousands of cubicle workers around the globe can say, "Yes, I can run Windows on my MacBook Pro. I won't be needing that Dell...
