The odds of me getting a Mac are increasing day by day. Apple just announced the public Beta of Boot Camp - software to allow users to boot Microsoft Windows on a new Intel-based Mac. I'll leave it to eWeek to fill in the rest of the details. For me, it means the chance to get to have a shiny new Mac that works well with my iPod and provides a robust GUI layer on top of UNIX, and at the same time be able to sync my Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003-based smartphone with Outlook on Windows XP. Nice.
