XP on Mac Contest Over, Solution Released

I never thought this would be possible with the Power PC CPU, but now with the recent conversion to Intel, you can install Windows XP on a mac machine.

Wikipedia - Adrenaline Junkie - An adrenaline junkie is somebody who feels as if they are addicted to adrenaline. Adrenaline junkies may enjoy competing in extreme sports like skydiving, surfing, motorcycle racing, or anything else that gets their heart rate up. This sort of addiction is brought on by enjoying the (adrenaline) "rush" gained from these activities.

Yea they do, but now you can actually have a dual boot system, run Windows directly off the HD with no emulation.

Yes they still make virtual PC. XP on the Mac is a hack, neither company support it.

A customer at bestbuy asked me what would be the perfect computer. I thought I'd go way out there and said buy a mac and put windows xp on it.

everyone was like where the hell did that come from. I thought it would be a bad ass idea.

Purpose is to dual boot. Best of both worlds without having to run an emulator which may not run some of the programs you like at an optimal level.

The fact that neither company supports it is irrelevant. Nothing else is supported such as all other party apps, plug-ins, etc...So no one cares if MS or Apple think it's a bad idea.

Reading WAAAYYYY too much into my post there.
The why comment is a joke. The support comment was answering the VPC question. MS still sells it and do not sell a Mac version of XP out of the box, so they still want your money for VPC.
