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.

They remove the new fangled file systems, the EFI support and a pile of other stuff.

So what DO we get for all our money?

The cheapest way to (legally) acquire Vista is through bundling, so the answer to your question is:

A shiny new hard drive, soon to be cleaned and reinstalled with something 21st-century.

-------------------------

Not much actually, but is has been like that since 20 years ago...

Still, people kept on buying their stuff instead of better software options from other companies.

I am not sure what DO you get, yourself, for your money...

BUT, I'm sure they DO not get nothing of my MONEY !!!

Did they ever say they were going to support EFI? If not, then they have not "removed" support for it, and WinFS still remains the only thing they've really "removed".
