I must say that Apple floored me with their announcement of Bootcamp. I was in the market for a new computer at the end of last year, and seriously contemplated switching to a Mac. In the end, however, I decided to stick with a PC, as all my software is PC based, and switching to a Mac would be extremely expensive for me as I'd need to buy not only the new computer, but new software as well. And with the software being Photoshop, Studio 8, etc. we're talking a good deal of money here. However, Bootcamp would open the possibility of switching slowly, using OS X when I can, and Windows when I have to.
I really think this was an excellent move for Apple. I know for me, as a long time Windows user, I immediately wanted to switch. My next computer will very likely be a Mac now, and it is unlikely it would have been before this (for the reasons stated above).
There are still a few issues I'm a bit worried about (like learning a whole new OS), but I'm really excited about this. Maybe come the end of the year I'll decide I need another tax deduction. ;)
