A Macintosh enthusiast has apparently managed to load Windows XP on an Intel Mac, nabbing a $14,000 (8,000) prize.

For some days, there has been discussion that the person who goes by the handle 'narf' had managed the technically challenging feat. Photos were posted on Flickr, and much debate ensued. However, narf's method had to prove replicable before the contest was officially ended.

On Thursday, though, the contest ended, and a winner was declared.

I think this will benefit the Mac. Not that I will run XP on my Mac, but people might buy a mac knowing they can always switch operating systems and keep hardware. Plus, my macmini looks and works great next to my LCDTV :)
