Intel Mac is dual booting

Remember hearing about the contest to dual boot Windows Xp and OSX on the new Intel chip based Macs? Well, its finally happened. The prize fund was being driven by the participants, starting out from nothing and stood at US$13,854 when it was nabbed yesterday by a pair of Californian programmers. (Contest Site Here)

Why anyone would want to dual boot the two on the one Mac is beyond me but fair play to them for sussing it out. Get the best of both worlds out of the one machine. I’m amazed that its been done but to be fair, nothing is beyond reach these days. Colin Nederkoom has also posted the solution online allowing people to download a how-to guide along with any additional files and drivers that are needed.

Could this mark the end of the PC vs Mac days? Concentrating on one machine…?
