Macs Finally Get Windows 7 Support in Boot Camp

Welcome to October 2009, Apple fans. Following the promise that there would be an update to add support for Windows 7 by the end of 2009, Apple has finally released an update for its Boot Camp software utility that allows Mac-users to run the newest iteration of Windows on their machines.

PC World reports that Boot Camp 3.1 now adds support for all three versions of Windows 7 (Home Premium, Professional, and Ultimate) in both 32-bit and 64-bit configurations and users wishing to upgrade to Windows 7 can do so using the Boot Camp Utility for Windows 7 Upgrade.

    No point in buying a Mac just to run Windows on it. Thats like buying an overpriced outdated pc because it looks cool.

    Is that so? Give me your IP address, and let's test that theory.

    And let's see... the last time my CUSTOM BUILT computer with my SELF-INSTALLED OS crashed was before nVidia wrote proper drivers for 64-bit Vista, which was in no way, shape, or form a fault of the Windows operating system.

    It's easy to make the Mac OS not crash by making it compatible with almost no hardware or software.

    I ask why Apple won't let me run osx virtually on my windows pc. Of course they worked hard to get 7 to work, how else are apple users going to be able to run the rest of the worlds software?
