Windows Vista goes to Boot Camp

— 12:18 AM on March 29, 2007

Nearly two months have passed since the release of Windows Vista, and now Apple has decided to give Mac users a first-hand taste of Redmond's latest creation. The iPod maker has released a new beta version of its fabled Boot Camp software that brings support for Windows Vista, albeit only in its 32-bit incarnation.

Boot Camp, which Apple first released almost a year ago, is a dual-boot solution that allows Windows and other PC operating systems to boot on Macs. Aside from introducing Vista support, the new version of Boot Camp includes updated Windows drivers (including a driver for the iSight camera built into MacBooks and iMacs), a Boot Camp Windows system tray application, improved keyboard support for non-English layouts, support for the Apple Remote, and an Apple Software Update app for both Windows XP and Windows Vista. Mac users can download and learn more about the new Boot Camp app here.
