Apple Boot Camp gets updated, now with Windows 7 support

In the Windows vs. Mac wars, the Apple fanboys now have another reason to gloat: Apple just last night updated Boot Camp to support Windows 7. Along with this update came the year’s first security update, which supposedly addresses 12 security vulnerabilities. Boot Camp version 3.1 supports the 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 users and Home Premium, Professional and Ultimate are supported as part of the update, too. With the upgrade in software and support for new drivers and utilities, if you need Windows 7 to run certain software, processes, or perhaps you prefer to use Windows for things like coding and development, knock yourself out. The update is available now. More →

Apple: Support for Windows 7 before end of year

Things always get a little chippy between Apple and Microsoft when Microsoft one company is preparing for a large OS release, and with Windows 7 it has been no different. Justin Long and John Hodgman have been all over our televisions throwing subtle digs at the newest OS to come out of Redmond. However, Apple is — from a support standpoint — singing a different tune as the Mac maker has announced plans to fully support Windows 7 in its Boot Camp software before the end of this calendar year. The announcement (if you can call it that) came via a knowledge base article on Apple’s support website and states a software update to the Boot Camp software and an Intel Mac will be required. All this bickering reminds us of a scene in The Dark Knight where the Joker explains to Batman, “I don’t want to kill you! What would I do without you? No, no, NO! No. You…you…complete me.”
