Bootcamp 3.1 – updated for Windows 7
If Apple are a little slower in getting Windows 7 support up and running on their dual-booting Mac, it is hardly a surprise: Apple don’t have a positive ‘thing’ for Microsoft. Anyway, Bootcamp has been updated to do the dirty deed. But, all isn’t perfectly pretty: users must already have Windows XP or Vista SP2 installed prior to covering their computer’s shame with the decent 7.

As Windows comes in at least 6 flavours, Apple have had to cover 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows 7: Home Premium, Professional, and Ultimate. There is still no word on whether the Ballmer-signed 7 will officially be supported by Apple.
Apple have also released a utility which allows OSX volumes to safely be mounted in Windows 7 in read-only format.
