Vista and VirtualPC on the ICBMs

    So, XP won't boot on an ICBM (Intel Chip Based Macintosh). Has anyone tried (or heard of anyone trying) to boot Vista on an ICBM?

    Second question.

    Any word on an ICBM-native version of VirtualPC?

    No, I've never heard of anyone trying to boot Vista on a missile...  it's against the license agreement to use beta software in a production environment, much less such a dangerous one.

    But, seriously, Vista won't (yet) boot on an Intel Mac because EFI support isn't complete in the most recent CTPs.  They will do it eventually, though:  they just have to get Microsoft to finish up EFI.

    According to Steve (the crazy one -- no, the other crazy one, with with black shirts), the new MacBooks are the bomb.

    I plan to get one. My ideal scenario is being able to run XP in VMWare/VirtualPC on it, so when I just have to run *insert program here* (okay, MapPoint), I can -- at "full speed". Dual-booting to run Age of Empires 3 and Rise of Nations would be cool as well.
