(Note: Apple's plans for supporting Windows seem to be partially unknown, so this FAQ entry may sometimes be out of date or otherwise inaccurate)

Yes! Apple recently released a utility known as Boot Camp that allows you to easily install Windows XP on your intel-based Mac, and should allow you to install Windows Vista when it is released. Please note a few things about Boot Camp:
  • You have to buy a full-version of Windows XP (upgrade versions will not suffice)
  • Windows running on a Mac will be just as vulnerable to viruses/worms/spyware/etc as it is on any other computer. Make sure you keep your machine up to date
  • Boot Camp is currently beta software, which means it is not up to Apple's normal quality standards, and may change in the future
  • OS X 10.5 "Leopard" will include the final version of Boot Camp, and may include virtualization support that will allow you to run Windows programs without rebooting your computer or leaving OS X!
