Apple Launches Latest Beta Version of Boot CampBy Scott Ferguson | Posted 10-31-2006
The Cupertino, Calif., PC maker released the latest beta version of the software, called Boot Camp 1.1.2, on its Web site on Oct. 30. The software gives Intel-based Macs the ability to run Microsoft's Windows operating system.
In its announcement, Apple said the new version of Boot Camp will support the "latest Intel-based Macintosh computers," which is a reference to the company's announcement on Oct. 24 that it has updated its MacBook Pro notebooks with Intel's Core 2 Duo processor.
This latest announcement was similar to a Boot Camp update given on Sept. 18, after Apple and Intel announced that the two companies had begun offering the Core 2 Duo processor in the iMac line.
On Oct. 18, Apple announced its fourth-quarter financial results and company executives said that since Boot Camp was first introduced on April 5 it has been downloaded more than a million times by users.
