BootCamp{width=”185” height=”197”}Apple today announced BootCamp, an Apple-created utility for dual booting your (and my) intel iMac with OS X and Windows XP. This is certainly more appealing than the OnMac method, which admirably came first.

“Boot Camp lets you install Windows XP without moving your Mac data, though you will need to bring your own copy to the table, as Apple Computer does not sell or support Microsoft Windows.(1) Boot Camp will burn a CD of all the required drivers for Windows so you don’t have to scrounge around the Internet looking for them.”

If that means native graphics drivers, bring it on. Let’s see how Battlefield 2 runs on this baby.


We’re up and running, and BF2 indeed runs smooth as silk at 1280 x 960. It’s great to have native drivers for all the hardware. Read More for some camera phone pics from the install process:\

The strange thing is– I haven’t booted into XP since.
