This is great news for Mac users like me who were worried from the early developer Macs that they would use BIOS, which would be a big step down from Open Firmware we were used to. It also puts a small hurdle for those trying to install Windows on their Intel-based Macintoshes (for dual boot) and an interesting challenge for those trying to â€œportâ€ Mac OS X for Intel to generic PCs.
N.B. Check out the new Intel on Macintosh ads. Widescreen is a nice touch, Apple.
