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."

Sorry but we're talking WinVista. Even Win2K3 is more robust than Linux - moreover Linux kernel is pretty lame for backwards compatibility issue because you can't take drivers compiled on Linux 2.6.15.1 and run them on Linux 2.6.15.2.

Right here right now - let's settle this. You prove to me that the nvidia driver compiled on Linux 2.6.15.1 can work on 2.6.15.2 without recompiling and I'll stop posting here on OSNEWS.


If you lose, you stop posting here forever.

Deal?

Dude, I know what I'm talking about so you better back away from this argument.
