Reaction to the Apple news

Posted by Kim Peterson at 10:49 AM

A few bits of reaction to the Apple news today:

Jupiter analyst Michael Gartenberg: "Microsoft should clearly have no issue selling another Windows license to customers. Bottom line, many users who need to use Windows for some app that just isn't available on Mac OS can now safely purchase a Macintosh."

ZDNet's Ed Bott: "When you add it all up, this is a feature that diehard enthusiasts might experiment with, but it won't be particularly useful in the real world."

The Unofficial Apple Weblog: "It's great that Apple's allowing all those Mac users to run Windows for an app or two that doesn't work in Mac OS X yet, but I really don't think Boot Camp signifies Apple's first step towards 'fighting the PC revolution' using anyone's hardware but their own."

The Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg: "I've been testing Windows on a new iMac for several days, and, except for a couple of trifling annoyances, it runs perfectly, just like a stand-alone Windows PC."
