MacIntels Not To Boot Vista?

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

Microsoft has just announced some potentially devastating news. Well, devastating to those folks who wanted to be able to boot Windows on their Intel-based Macs. Contrary to earlier assumptions, Microsoft Vista, the company s next major operating system, will not support EFI, the method used by MacIntels during boot up. EFI, which Intel hopes is to replace BIOS, will not be supported by Microsoft until Longhorn Server, due out next year. In short, this means that MacIntel users won t simply be able to put in a Vista install disc and have it just work. Expect hackers to have this problem licked in no time.
