Apple has released an updated beta version of its Boot Camp software, which gives an Intel-based Macintosh the ability to run either Mac OS X or Windows XP.

bootcamp is a beta versin of a feature that will be included in the next verison of OS X due eraly in 2007-codenamed LEOPARD.but it works pretty well right now.the concept behind bootcamp is virtualisation- a technique that would allow you to run windows and mac os along side each other at the same time, so you can switch from one to the other as easily as switching from one application to another.buy a mac and you get two computers for the price of one.

concept behind bootcamp is virtualisation

I don't believe that's true. BootCamp is a dual-boot solution, letting you start your computer using Mac OS X or Windows.

Parallels Desktop is a virtualization too, allowing you to run one or more copy of Windows (or other OSes, e.g., Linux) "in a window" on an Intel Mac. Thus, a second "virtual" computer runs on your physical machine.

A third approach is used by CrossOver and WINE, where software is installed that lets many but not all windows applications run on Mac OS X, without need for any Windows install.
