I was reading an article linked from Apple's website about Boot Camp and then I saw the familiar Windows "bliss" wallpaper. (It's familiar because I see it on each of the 46 computers in the computer lab I run at school.) Then, suddenly, my stomach went a little askew as I realized that around that familiar, noxious windows background and taskbar was the pristine shell of an iMac!

I know this whole Windows-compatibility scheme is good for Apple in the big picture and that it may draw more and more converts out of the dark and into the Mac fold, but for my two cents, I'd never sully a Mac with Windows. Virtualization to run a few apps, maybe, but I'd smash my Mac before I booted to a Microsoft OS.

Cool. I'm glad you're passionate about your operating systems.

Yeah, well, I very well might have to eat my words. Virtualization will probably never be good enough for games, and someday some killer title will compel me to dual boot.

Oh well...

Nothing at all to do with iMacs specificially. There's a whole forum, called Alternative OS, for discussing this.
