Apple has been trailing in the computer industry for many years. In an effort to cut costs on proprietary technology, Apple now has the new iMac which is based on the Intel architecture. Recently, Apple announced that it would permit Windows XP to be installed on its iMacs. Apple made the right move by permitting Windows to be installed on their Intel-based iMac computers. Apple users now have the best of both worlds. They can run their favorite iMac programs and when needed, switch to Windows for other applications or games which will not run on iMac. There are many more games and applications for the PC rather than Mac. Next, iMac comes with its Tiger Operating System pre-installed. If a person buys an iMac and runs Windows as well, there’s no cost to Apple. The customer isn’t free to choose either Tiger or Windows. Best of all, Apple doesn’t need to support the Windows Operating System. This eliminates support costs as Microsoft would field those support issues.
