Would you *really* want to dual boot Mactel?

WinXP and OSX dual boot in MacBook Pro:
Finally I’ve succeeded in installing Windows XP in MacBook Pro. Now it can dual boot between Windows XP and MacOS X. There’re few issues with windows xp but being able to boot smoothly between these 2 OSes are really amazing.

I do consider myself a geek, and I do like to tinker with things -- yet I am still a bit amazed that folks are so much intrigued and excited about a success of a story referenced above. I might sound like an old fart here -- but what's the deal? Ok, MSFT is not supporting EFI (and won't be in Vista either), yet Apple has been very much upfront about the thing -- there are no “special” barriers to being able to do this...

I can't remember where I saw this (most probably Slashdot -- but I may be mistaken), but it is so very true: for years Mac fans have been saying their machines and OS a superior to Windows ones -- and now so many of them have succumbed to this?..
