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."

IBM's "special keys" talk direct to the hardware for volume, brightness, wireless antenna control, etc. No OS intervention needed (its the same on a lot of laptops where their main audience isn't the home user, for some odd reason...).

The trackpoint is a PS/2 device - well, it might be USB by now - and as such is completely standard too.
