Meez

Yeah, so I did one of those Meez things which is at www.meez.com … but it didn’t seem to work in my Firefox beta and even (in Safari at least) it is so pathetically slow to be unusable if you don’t have lots of time. It doesn’t look like me but it’s as close as I could get …

XP Boot Camp

“Apple® today introduced Boot Camp, public beta software that enables Intel-based Macs to run Windows XP. Available as a download beginning today, Boot Camp allows users with a Microsoft Windows XP installation disc to install Windows XP on an Intel-based Mac®, and once installation is complete, users can restart their computer to run either Mac OS® X or Windows XP. Boot Camp will be a feature in “Leopard,” Apple’s next major release of Mac OS X, that will be previewed at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference in August.”

Press Release

Vista Advanced

Why do they keep doing this? Removing every advancement and reason for bothering in the first place???

Vista Advanced?
With Vista ditching such great advancements as a new file system, dumping support for EFI is just one more step in making this operating system just another marketing challenge for Microsoft more then a leap forward for Windows users. Once again, users will be forced to use the 20-year-old BIOS to boot their systems instead of the next generation channel of communication between the operating system and hardware. While Apple users get to enjoy their drivers living in EFI flash memory, Vista users will continue to have hardware and software issues like crashes that have so plagued Windows for over a decade.

So again, Apple will have the truly advanced operating system and once again, Apple and Microsoft can’t play together on the school playground. Surprise, surprise.
