The article reports that a few weeks after a team of hobbyists figured out a hack that let them run Windows on the latest Macs, Apple introduced a software that lets owners of Intel-based Macs to do the same thing. Boot Camp, which will be included as part of OS X 10.5, is now available as a public beta release; it allows users to boot directly into Microsoft Windows XP. The software includes the Boot Camp Assistant application, which aids with drive partitioning and the installation of Windows drivers for Mac hardware. The partitioning process is done in OS X and features a slider that lets users determine the amount of space to give to Windows. Partitioning is dynamic, so you don't need to erase your hard drive in order to create a new Windows partition. For added safety and flexibility, Boot Camp automatically leaves 5GB of free space surrounding the Mac and Windows partitions. Changing the size of a partition later, or removing it altogether, is also supported directly within Boot Camp Assistant.
