Apple computer has released BootCamp. This allows users to boot Windows XP on the Intel Macs. Some testers have complained abot Blue screens but some have been successful in getting XP to boot on the machines. This will be included in Leopard.

Two points, this is an official solution by Apple and not a third party. All drivers are included to allow Windows to use the Webcam, the Apple keyboard and the Apple mouse and I assume airport. This will help Apple customers who have a need or just want to run Windows on the intel macs the maximum value for the money they have spent. I dont know how well this will go over with hardcore Mac heads but professionals and Windows fans will love the idea.

ENTRY REVISION:  I have been told iSight does NOT work with XP.  I have no idea when or if it will ever be supported.  If not, plenty of good quality USB webcams are available.
