Steve Wozniak Doesn't Like Apple's Boot Camp

Virtualization to the rescue

Steve Wozniak, the engineering wizard behind the original Apple computers, doesn't seem to like Apple's Boot Camp -- a piece of software that the company released a few short weeks ago that allowed its Intel-based Macs to run Windows XP natively. In an interview with the Seattle Times, Wozniak indicated that he does use Windows but not a PC. Instead, he currently uses Virtual PC to run Windows so that he can switch instantly between the two operating systems.

Like many users, Wozniak does not like to have to reboot his Mac in order to use a different OS. Wozniak also mentioned in the interview that he doesn't believe Boot Camp will make PC users jump up and make the switch to a Mac. "What I really want is just a window that I can go back and forth instantly. I don't have to reboot. I go to Macintosh, I go to the PC, I go to Macintosh" said Wozniak.

We wonder what Wozniak would think of Parallels' Workstation 2.1. The breakthrough virtualization application utilizes VT technology in Intel's Core Duo processors to give guest operating systems direct access to host processor resources. This technically allows a virtualized operating system to run at or near native speeds.

Wozniak also spoke a little bit about his relationship with Apple CEO Steve Jobs and indicated that he and Jobs are actually not very close friends at all. Jobs recently declined to write the foreword in Wozniak's upcoming autobiography. More on the interview here.
