WinXP on a Mac Contest

By Deane Barker on January 24, 2006

The Contest: Here’s a contest to be the first person to boot WinXP on a Intel-based Mac. It started out with a bounty of $100, but it’s climbed to $3,097 at this writing, and it just hit Slashdot, so expect it to go higher.

My MacBook is shipping on the 15th of February. I told my boss that this would replace my IBM desktop and I could boot Windows XP on it. I am still confident it can be done. I am pledging $100 of my own money and offering anyone else who would like the instructions on how to Dual boot these two operating systems the ability to donate some of their money into the pot as a reward for the person / group that can make dual-booting Mac OS X and Windows XP happen on an Intel Mac. Good Luck,

Why you’d want to boot such great software on inferior hardware like that is beyond me. And Jobs kicks puppies.

  1. Why you’d want to boot such great software on inferior hardware like that is beyond me.

    I think you got that backwards Deane.

    And Jobs kicks puppies.

    If he did, they deserved it. And it boosted Apple’s stock price when he did. And Michael Dell wished he had kicked them first.
