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."

Parent was talking about Vista not XP.

Incorrect. stephanem was talking about XP security:
After all the only magic in MacOS is at the UI level, the kernel has just been shown to be as insecure as WinXP.

stephanem only brought up Vista with regards to the responsiveness, or speed, of the kernel:
I really wonder how fast OSX kernel compares to WinVista in speed since MS has years and years of expertise in optimising for x86.

I do agree that Vista will be leaps and bounds ahead of XP as far as security goes, but my initial comment remains.
