    ...and you're worried, why? Becuase you might prefer a different OS than Mac? OMG!!... You have to HATE Microsoft and LOVE only Apple... stop before Microsoft brainwashes you any further!
    Seriously, if you like a new OS then big deal. Use it and like it and get over it. Its only a computer, nothing to get upset about.

    Well I think it's better than OS X on the MacBook beause it's much faster. Key and mouse response is better, the fans seem to regulate more efficiently, Vista discovers my Apple wireless keyboard and Bluetooth Mighty Mouse as soon as I open the lid, I can use Photoshop on my laptop again, and I can play solitaire.

    Don't get me wrong though. Vista on the MacBook is nothing compared to OS X on my G5. But for the Intel laptop, it's another ball game.

    I'm using Boot Camp.

    I downloaded the Boot Camp Assistant from Apple, and ran it exactly as I would if I was installing XP, but when it told me to insert the XP disk, I put in the Vista DVD instead. To be honest, I was astonished it actually installed without a hitch.

    EDIT: I don't think any of this is "supported" yet.

    One feature I hope that Apple adopts is the way Vista will display open applications...it does it in a 3-D angled stack view (that so doesn't explain it perfectly...google for some images, its very kewl)...I like that way better than just seeing the greyed out windows all around the screen and making the selection that way.

    Vista's security is going to be the biggest hurdle though. The early beta's make you click through dialogs to do anything network related...PITA! Hopefully they fix it for the final release.

    Everything I need to do computer-wise is covered by Mac compatible software. If I had an Intel Mac I'd only run Vista/XP for gaming.

    I believe you can use Disk Utility to burn ISOs. Check out this link: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.p...60619181010389

    A few tips:

    1. Before you do anything, back up any important files on the computer. This will also erase your XP installation.

    2. Download the x86 version, not the x64 version.

    3. When you run Boot Camp Assistant, make sure to make the Windows partition at least 30 GB.

    4. Open XP, then insert the disk, and the Vista installer will start automatically. Don't try to boot from the Vista DVD.

    5. The computer will restart several times during the installation. It's important you stay with the computer the entire time, because when it restarts, you'll have to press OPTION, and choose "Windows" to continue the installation.

    6. Very Important: As soon as you can, right click on the Vista Desktop, and click Personalize. Set the screen resolution to the setting all the way on the right of the slider.
