The big question for new Mac: will it run Windows?

Engadget is reporting that the new Mac will only run Vista. There’s other discussion on Memeorandum. I don’t know the facts, and am trying to find out. I’ll certainly be asking around on Friday when I’m at MacWorld. Nate Mook over on BetaNews is reporting the same. More discussion on Memeorandum.

Oh, and Apple has a new blog from its .MAC team. What’s up with the partial-text RSS feed, though? Unsubscribed!

  1. I honestly do not understand what the fasination is with running Windows on the Macbook Pro especially with those who would want to run Vista exclusively on it.

    If you want to run Vista, get a Dell or something equally boring.

  3. Whether it runs windows is not the big question, it’s a footnote. It will run Virtual PC, just like the last round of Macs did. If somebody gets it to boot MS windows, then you save a couple of hundred bucks and use somebody’s OEM pack from a remainder bin instead of forking over to the Evil Empire for a copy of VPC.

    What I want to know, is whether it will run BeOS and VMWare.
