Although I hate Windoze, Bootcamp is amazing! I bought my new Intel iMac with the idea in mind of playing all of my Windoze games on it. I knew that someone would eventually figure out a way to run Windoze on the new Macs. I bought a 20" iMac with 1 GB RAM and the 256 MB VRAM upgrade. I installed Bootcamp Friday, and I have been amazed. A few things don't work (iSight, IRDA, and one of the USB ports). No biggie. Windoze blazes along on the iMac. Games play better than any other system I've played on. Gaming on OS X has always been a pain. Now with this capability, I can have my cake and eat it too. When I get sick of Windoze, I can escape back into OS X. The new Macs have become the most powerful computer systems on the planet because of Bootcamp. OS X, Windoze, Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris...anything can be run on a Mac. Awesome.
