Suit #1: I mean, have you got any insight as to why a bright boy like this would jeopardize the lives of millions?
Suit #2: No, sir, he says he does this sort of thing for fun.

I think the original post is asking how windows runs, not how to get it on there...

Anyways, I'm dual booting my macbook between OSX and XP. XP runs ok; some of the drivers for the apple-specific hardware are a bit glitchy, though (namely, the USB stuff, touchpad, and soundcard). However, all of these devices work... they just have a few "annoyances", if you will. XP also runs really slow when running from battery power, and it's not as good at using both cores as OSX is.

That being said, I'm pretty sure that apple will clean up the drivers by the official bootcamp release (in august, probably). Until then, the thing runs like a charm, and I'm glad that I sprung for a new machine.
