why? it'll just be windows on the usual PM hardware then...plus more $ for antivirus SW, etc. it would however be the prettiest damn windows machine around tho.
it will be hilarious if ppl w/moderate tech knowledge install xp on their mac and then kill OS X and their whole system w/ windows viruses, spyware, etc.
i know some ppl need windows for various business/productivity apps, but imo OS X is the better OS. if ppl can hack OS X onto their PC hardware my guess is that apple will get a lot of free marketing for the ease of use and functionality of their platform when sitting alongside windows on the same hardware. i.e.-windows XP's faults will become glaring as opposed to being able to have some respite behind the former "it's faster" mantra.
why would i install windows on my potenial mactel hardware? an occasional game. but then w/ the HW switch perhaps we'll see the gaming differences close or disappear.
