Apple's Boot Camp 1.2 supports Windows Vista

Although we were already informed that Leopard wouldn't be postponed for Vista support, it's always comforting to have just a tad more proof, and you really can't ask for much more than the latest iteration of Boot Camp (v1.2) now playing nice with Redmond's newfangled OS. Aside from allowing Intel-based Macs to load up Microsoft's latest operating system, the latest beta also includes updated drivers for the "trackpad, AppleTime, audio, graphics, modem, and iSight," and you can even control the action in Windows Media Player (and iTunes, of course) with the Apple Remote. Additionally, Apple is now invading your Windows system tray by adding an icon "for easy access to Boot Camp information and actions," and finally, you'll find Apple Software Update within both Windows XP and Vista environments. So while we can't exactly announce that Leopard is ready to pounce just yet, it's fair game to say that a new OS is most definitely available for your beloved Mac.
