    Like it or not it will be part of the Mac world. It should get the same coverage as linux etc.

    Exactly Apple isnt supporting windows its just allowing users to install another x86 OS on machines that dont support EFI and still rely on a BIOS hence why i suggested alternative OS forum.

    For me id like to use Ubuntu linux on an intel mac rather then windows but hey thats me


    Apple, think different

    Boot Camp is an Apple app. Windows isn't. Apple itself doesn't support Windows. Why should it? Why should MF? Unless like Apple with iTunes for Windows and Safari for Windows, it hopes to gain a wider audience.

    Windows is not a part of the Mac world, any more than Vista is part of OS X's world (or my world, at least).

    If MF ends up with pure Windows forums, the site's name would be misleading. A more neutral name would be the logical next step by INET International. Ars Technica, for instance, has Mac, Windows and other OS forums. But its name is platform neutral.

    Yes.

    This forum is Mac Forum and not Mac OS X forum.

    Therefore you could run windows only on a Mac......

    So technically you should be allowed to.

    I like the 'other software' idea... this is called 'Mac-Forums' and not 'Mac-and-maybe-a-bit-of-windows Forums' so i dont really think Windows deserves a place on a mac forum.
    iReplaced a PC.

    It's already done. I'm going to go ahead and lock this as it's no longer pertinent.
