Yes, Boot Camp is dual boot. A dual-boot Mac is no use to me, because I need to use a lot of other software *at the same time* as FrameMaker, cross-referencing Excel, mail and so on. One could do this most easily by networking a real PC to the Mac, and running FrameMaker on that. I was at IPEX on Wednesday, the big 4-yearly UK show for the printing and publishing industries, and talked to the people on the Apple stand. Their general view was that Apple had done it because there were a lot of Windows users who wanted to run XP on Apple's 'real cool, superior hardware' [I am quoting here]. I hope this doesn't turn out to be hubris. My concern is that with Apple MacIntels being able to run XP, what is the incentive for Adobe to go on producing *any Mac applications at all*? -- Steve
