Bootcamp is an Installer, Partitions the Hard Drive, Gives you a Boot manager and the drivers for Windows. Otherwise once Windows is installed it works like on any other computer with the same hardware as in your Mac. So in other words, Windows will be Windows and work like on any PC.

If you bought say a Dell or HP with the same basic hardware as your Macbook, it will work just the same on the Mac as the PC.
