I think it makes them slightly more useful in that you have a machine that can run both OSes at full speed without having to have two boxes. It means you dont have to bugger about with execution layers like Darwine or virtual PC programs like VirtualPC, you can just run everything natively.

However it doesnt make me want to run out and buy a mac any more than it did this morning :)

Quick synopsis please - is this just XP or have they got it dual booting?

Dual booting would be awesome when the Intel Power Macs (Mac Macs?) come out as you cold have Windows just for gaming and OSX for everything else.

Its dual booting. The competition was to have both OSes bootable with neither one conflicting with the other.
