Windows Microsoft revealed today that it will not support EFI booting for Windows Vista on its launch. The news will be a shock for owners of Intel Macs who had hoped they would be able to dual-boot between Windows Vista and OS X. Intel Macs only support booting via EFI.

Oh well. Even though I am buying a intel mini, it is no big loss. If there really are not any systems out there that even use EFI, as we know there can't be as they wouldn't be able to use Windows at all, why bother with supporting it? Pushing the technology is cool and all but is this really what everyone is waiting for? Seems to me that if drivers are stored in flash ram and not part of the OS it might be more of a pain to troubleshoot and update drivers... Don't really know much about it though, so just my 2 cents...
