XP on MacTel is official: narf gets paid

Updated ·1 min read

It's over, done with, and the check is in the mail- literally. Colin Nederkoorn has just verified the solution that the now-famous narf and fellow programmer blanka came up with for dual-booting Windows XP and OS X on an Intel-powered Mac, and announced that all future donations to the project will go towards the open-source work that will evolve from the contest. MacRumors is reporting that the winning methodology will be posted online shortly, and will supposedly work on the 17- and 20-inch iMacs, MacBook Pro, and new Mac Mini. Chalk up another victory for the invisible hand of capitalism -- it's amazing how fast $13,000 can get folks to code.
