Apple As we reported a few days ago, the Windows XP on Mac contest has been won by 'narf2006'. The contest website says that a solution has been found and tested to work. A video of Windows XP booting can also be found.

I consider this a hallmark in computing. People can rant and rave about how useless Windows XP is, or question why this project/contest was done... which shows how disillusioned they are. There is a need for Windows XP, whether you like it or not, and this 'hack' and the $14k of community money behind it definately shows there's a need for it. And, in this scenario, I really do not understand what all the complaining does ultimately. If someone could explain that, I would appreciate it.

I, however, do understand the need for people to commend this kind of work, be it in donation or just praise. Rather that be anti-supportive of a project like this, let's be proactive and test out the software if we can. Let's focus on the future of this project like driver issues and stability... and to build a community instead of being ignorant of the importance of this milestone. If you have something negative to say about it, be thorough in your critique; don't just put up a knee-jerk reactionary comment.
