OSes just keep on coming! The latest non-Apple OS to boot on an Intel Mac, thanks to Boot Camp, is Solaris. That's
right, a Sun engineer managed to get a build
of Solaris up and running on his Intel iMac. It isn't fully functional yet, but I have no doubt that it will be
soon.Macs are fast becom...

probably won't get nearly as much hype as Apple's Boot Camp, the new
beta of Parallels Workstation could actually prove to be more useful for Mac owners than the Apple boot manager.
Parallels Workstation 2.1 Beta for Mac OS X creates a virtual machine on an Intel-based Mac, allowing the ow...

it's easier than ever, will you dual-boot your
Mac? By the time Leopard is available, this will be a piece of cake (can you imagine hopping from OS to OS as easily as
Fast User Switching? A guy can dream). I know that it all depends on things like compatibility, ease etc. But all
While some early message-board reviews
of Apple's new Boot Camp
software -- which was announced earlier today --
seem to show that there are at least some hazards to running Windows on a Mac (see the pic at right, which is
apparently one of the first Boot
Camp-assisted Mac BSODs), The Wall Street Jo...
Well, that didn't
take long. It seems that Windows' crash-tastic tendencies aren't limited to PCs. Check out this post by Deal Catcher forum user dbaxter. He writes
that after installing Boot Camp, things were going swimmingly...for thirty minutes. While browsing USB devices, Windows
did what Window...
If you want to run Windows on your
Intel-based Mac but found narf and blanka's solution a little too
intimidating, you now have another option -- and this one's from Apple. The company has released a public beta of a
technology called Boot Camp, which will be included in the next version of OS X. As...
Mactel-Linux project experienced some success this week
when they got a copy of Gentoo Linux to boot on an Intel-based iMac. We know, Linux on Apple hardware isn't news (Yellow Dog or Ubuntu, anyone?), but
it's still nice to reward the efforts of the seemingly tireless Linux community. They've g...

made a universaly binary version of Nanosaur II available as a public beta back in
October, and this week the official, non-beta version 2.0 has
been released. This version requires at least Mac OS 10.4, but will run on both PowerPC Macs and MacIntels (though
Pangea urges those with...

Hot on the heels of yesterday's announcements, The Omnigroup has released free universal binary updates for registered users of the majority of their applications, including OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, OmniDiskSweeper, OmniObjectMeter and OmniDictionary. These will all run natively on the new Intel-b...

created a website to answer all your questions about the new Intel Core Duo
chips that now power some of our beloved Macs. Thrill to the performance charts that show Intel chips kicking G4 and G5
butt. No one toasted Intel bunny in sight.It is a brave new world, friends, and I for one welc...

Inquirer is reporting that Intel will drop the 'Intel inside'
slogan and logo this January and introduce a new marketing approach. Hmm, something else happens this January, but I
can't quite put on my finger on it.Ah, Macworld! Could it be that Intel and Apple have teamed up to create
a new mark...
