Apple Releases Boot Camp 1.1

For those who may be interested:

http://www.macrumors.com/pages/2006/...15193455.shtml

Apple has quietly posted an update to Boot Camp to version 1.1. According to the Boot Camp page, the new version remains in beta and contains many updates for all new and previous Boot Camp beta users.

New features include:

Support for the latest Intel-based Macintosh computers
Easier partitioning using presets for popular sizes
Ability to install Windows XP on any internal disk
iSight camera support
Support for built-in microphones
Right-click when pressing the right-hand Apple key on Apple keyboards
Improved Apple keyboard support including Delete, PrintScreen, NumLock, and ScrollLock keys

Boot Camp is Apple's Windows-on-the-Mac solution, allowing owners of Intel-based Macs to install and boot Windows XP alongside Mac OS X. Unlike virtualization solutions, Apple's solution requires you to reboot your machine to switch from one operating system to another.

Boot Camp was originally released in April 2006, and the final version is expected in Leopard Mac OS X 10.5 which is due in the Spring of 2007.


----------------------

I installed it this evening, and yes, the iSight camera now works in Windows XP. I used it in Windows Live Messenger successfully. There are a few more features that may be of interest, but the iSight in Windows was one thing I was waiting on.

I wonder if the video drivers are improved. I run a Mac Mini as my "HTPC" to watch videos, surf, etc...but OSX looks WAY better on my DLP than XP does.

Forgive my ignorance, but does Boot Camp only work on Intel-based Macs? I have the latest G5 that isn't Intel-based, so I guess I'm just praying I'm not screwed.

I wouldn't be so mad if Virtual PC didn't suck so much.
