With just three days to go before Leopard hits the scene, Apple's gone ahead and made Boot Camp unavailable to download -- a move that shouldn't surprise anyone, because we knew it was coming the day Leopard was announced. Tiger users with Boot Camp partitions who aren't ready to make the leap to Leopard can rest easy, however, since existing Boot Camp installations will continue to work fine -- but you'll still be riding dirty since the beta license technically expires on Friday with Leopard's release. Again, none of this is a surprise at all, but it still would have been nice for Apple to let people know they'd be pulling the download -- if you haven't snagged a copy by now, you're stuck paying the $129 for Leopard.
