Macworld Roundtable Goes To Boot Camp
8:14 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Yesterday Macworld posted a new roundtable feature focusing on Apple's release of the Boot Camp dual booting solution and its effects on the future of Mac software. Editorial Director Jason Snell, Senior Editor Rob Griffiths, and Senior Editor Peter Cohen discussed the situation, including the impact on Mac game companies.

CF : Letís switch to games for a moment. Take a game that exists on both platformsósay, World of Warcraft. Is running it on a Mac fundamentally different from running it on a PC?

PC : Anecdotally, Iíve heard from several people since Boot Camp was introduced that have said, ďA Mac wasnít even on my radar, but now Iím definitely getting one.Ē

JS : Iím excited about playing PC games on my Mac. But only certain ones, the kind that consume your entire interface anyway, so you donít know what OS youíre on, and you certainly arenít running any other apps simultaneously. (World of Warcraft fits those criteria.) But I want to affirm what Peter just said: For a lot of PC-oriented people, the Mac just became a relevant option because itís got that Windows safety net behind it.

The rest of the discussion can be found at the link below.
