Boot Camp Beta Expiration May Cause Problems
2:04 PM | Eddie Park | 3 comments

An article posted by CNET warns about possible complications regarding the open beta for Apple's Boot Camp, the application allows users to create a partition on their hard drives to boot into Windows. According to a statement gleaned from Apple spokesperson Lynn Fox, the Boot Camp Assistant Software will cease to work once the beta period ends. While all files will be left intact, CNET notes that deleting or modifying the partition afterwards may become a bit of a trial:

The fact that the beta Boot Camp Assistant software will cease to work is noteworthy because that tool has a simple way for users to delete their Windows partition. There are ways to do it without Boot Camp, but it is a more difficult and potentially thorny process.
While Apple is unlikely to simply leave beta users high and dry when the official version of Boot Camp rolls out, current users may want to take this message as a heads-up in preparation for the final release. The beta period, according to official agreement, lasts until the official version is released or when September 30th rolls around.
