Joined-up thinking

Now that the dust has settled a bit, we can start viewing Apple's surprise release of Boot Camp - a utility that allows dual booting into Windows XP on an Intel-powered Mac - with a less hysterical eye. While tech-columnist and podcast-pundit John Dvorak is still gaining column inches for claiming that this is the first move in Apple's long-term plan to drop OS X in favour of Mac boxes running Windows exclusively, the general consensus is that Dvorak's theory doesn't really hold water.

For a start, it's doubtful that Apple wants to inflict viruses on its users. Apple likes to control the end-to-end experience, which makes little tasks - like plugging in a digital camera - a dream, and swapping to Windows would allow a third party to control this and potentially throw a spanner in the works. That's just not going to happen.
