“Those considering setting up a Windows partition on a Mac using the test version of Apple’s Boot Camp might want to pay close attention to the licensing terms that accompany the beta software,” Ina Fried reports for CNET News.
Fried reports, “According to the terms, which are posted on Apple’s Web site, the software is licensed only until Apple comes out with a commercial release of Boot Camp, or until 30 September, whichever comes first.”
“Released as a public beta in April 2006, Boot Camp allows owners of Intel-based Macs to set up a separate Windows partition and boot into either Windows or the Mac OS. Apple updated the test software last month to add support for Windows Vista. The company has also said it will build a final version of the software into the next Mac OS release, dubbed Leopard and due out later this spring,” Fried reports.
Fried reports, “The rub is that Apple has not said whether it will issue a final version of Boot Camp for Tiger users, though there have been rumours that Apple will offer a paid Tiger version of Boot Camp.”
