Microsoft and Apple started “working together” after Apple introduced notebooks powered by Intel processors early this year.
What made possible to run Windows on an Apple notebook was a piece of software named Boot Camp that allowed users to install Windows on a Intel powered notebook.
This way, MacBook Pro users were able to taste the Windows SO on their notebooks.
Now, the last build of Vista (5536) works on Intel Macs. Considered to be a Vista Pre-RC1, this build works beautiful on MacBook Pro. At least this is what the testers that tried it said.
If you are interested to install Vista, the installation procedure is the same as with Windows XP SP2. There are some downsides. Not all the drivers provided in Boot Camp will work under Vista and iSight and the Apple keyboard will not install.
All the bells and whistles of the new Aero GUI are supported on my MacBook Pro which means that if nothing changes, Vista will be available for MacBook too.
This will mark a new era because Apple users will be able to experience a Windows version right as soon as will be available for PC.
