Some Mac users are reporting problems with Apple's Boot Camp, the software that lets Intel-based Macs run Windows. Ironically, some users have said been stuck with Windows, with their hardware left unable to reboot the Mac OS.

That's an overstatement, when the worst case scenario reported is having to reformat your hard drive.
Boot Camp is so cool that some folks are getting their first taste of life on the bleeding edge. "Let's be careful out there."
why do you want to have a dual boot with windows when you can emulate
Emulation has gotten a bad name in the Mac crowd because we are used to thinking of emulating the whole computer processor.
But on an Intel Mac, where you're emulating just some odds and ends of the platform (e.g., BIOS) it'd be much faster. With plenty of RAM, you might not notice a slowdown at all.
A virtualization product, like VMware or Virtual PC (not the "for Mac" version) would be very handy for a Mac webmaster.
(Then I'll just use Boot Camp for playing games.)
