It appears to me that Apple is doing all that they can to break down barriers and to make sure that folks understand that Apple hardware is not what it used to be…
Apple continues to make headway in their attempt to remove the barriers that have divided the Mac/Windows world for so long. By now, everyone is well aware that Apple is moving the Mac platform to Intel x86 based machines. Significance: Cheaper hardware for everyone who loves the Mac OS.
Now Apple emerges with a new strategy – allow Windows to run on the Mac Hardware! They recently released software, dubbed Boot Camp, that makes this process easy. This strategy allows lovers of Mac hardware to still have access to the safety of Windows. Significance: Windows users can now enjoy the beauty of Mac Hardware.
The real beauty is that Windows users now have an easy, safe way to experience the Mac OS. This should translate to a higher adoption rate for Apple’s Mac OS. Cheaper hardware and the ability to run both Mac & Windows OS’s – that is a pretty compelling case for Apple. No wonder their shares went up 8% upon announcement. Source: CentreBlog
