Apple comes through with BootCamp

This is awesome — I can dual boot my MacBook!

That means I can get rid of all my PC’s and just use my MacBook.

Sure it’s just a BETA, but it looks like it will do the job.

Now I just need to get a Windows XP Pro SP2 install disk… hmmm…

Ah… NewEgg, how I love thee: Microsoft Windows XP Professional With SP2

UPDATE: Apple shares are up 8% thanks to this news!

UPDATE: XP Pro arrives today, I’m going to do the install tonight! I’d post pictures, but many others already have. Ok, maybe 1 picture 😉

The Switch Pt 1

I’m going to do it. I can’t hold back any longer- it simply must be done.

I’m going to switch to a Mac.

Yup.

Now that I’ve made the decision, it really gets interesting. I’ve been hesitating for quite awhile as switching for me is a big deal (and not just for my ego).

Here’s the steps I see in switiching:

The easy part:

  1. Take a deep breath. Exhale.
  2. Buy a pimped out MacBook Pro.

The hard part:

  1. Get a two button mouse (must have right click)
  2. Cross platform upgrade my Adobe apps to Mac
  3. Somehow get a Mac license for Sorenson squeeze
  4. Figure out how I’m going to get all my email moved over
  5. See if I can transfer my Office license to Mac
  6. Find the best Windows emulation software for OS X (so I can still run Sony Vegas as needed)
  7. Figure out how to transfer about 480 GB of data on external and internal NTFS drives to HFS formatted drives (yikes!)
  8. Sell my notebook
  9. Sell my desktop
  10. Breath a sigh of relief

Am I forgetting anything? I’m sure I am…
