Apple Dan Kusnetzky, Apple program vice president, spoke to PC Pro News at IDC and said that Apple has no plans to support booting into Vista on the new Intel Macs. However, a Microsoft spokesman said that Microsoft would have no problem granting a Windows licence to Apple, in exactly the same way it currently provides licences to Dell and HP: "Microsoft would support Apple the same way it supports every other PC manufacturer." But Dan Kusnetzky said it would be difficult to know who would support that machine if Windows was running on a Mac. However, "no doubt someone will work out how to run Windows on the Mac, even if Apple doesn't technically support that."

I can't see Apple agreeing with this. If OSX was sold seperately to be installed on any x86 system then yes they may consider becoming like HP and Dell that provide consumers the choice between Windows or Linux be preinstalled. Since the OSX EULA is entirely set out to ensure OSX is not distrubted on systems not sold by Apple then Apple won't be interested in providing their customers this option.
