The thing that interests me the most is that this a Beta of software that is going to be in Leopard. What will that be capable of?

Fast switching between the two OSes? Ability to move files onto an NFTS formatted space? Ability to use Bootcamp to play with partition size even after you've set it up (say, increase your XP space from 30GB to 50GB)? Support for more types of machines/chips? CD drivers step integrated into Bootcamp? Who knows.

If you formatted your drive as FAT you'd have to convert to NTFS before resizing over 30GB.

Well if you count Tycoon and Sim games as rabies then yes :) The analogy was pretty weak, but I thought it might bring a chuckle. Poo on me :P

Basically, I just want to play games. If I can't get those games natively then I welcome dual booting or virtualization.

Boot windows to play games then boot back to OS X to do everything else...and WoW. heh.

But it only got those because it was defending Steve from a vicious wolf! Which in the analogy would represent... um...

OK, I'm done now.  :)

Nope. Fat32's good for a lot bigger than that. Well, as good as it can be.
