WinXPonaMac is reporting that you can now run Win XP on a MacIntel box - natively, no emulation! This could be the missing link that will enable me to switch all of my house-hold PCs to iMacs exclusively. For those annoying occasions that I need to access a Windows only application or service I can boot into native Windows XP.
Install instructions will be posted shortly - time to order my first Intel Mac!
I bet, however, that multimedia apps (sound, 3D, integrated video camera) won't work that well initially due to lack of proper drivers - but maybe this is also just a matter of time until new drivers become available.
Goodbye "dull little boxes", welcome to Hardware Design nirvana!
