Boot Camp can run Linux!

This beauty just keeps giving, and in Apple’s profit sense that’s no understatement. A forum member down at applenova.com called Torifile has found by chance it seems, that Apple’s Boot Camp does indeed run Linux. In his article he states how he booted the machine up after installing XP with the option key, and that there was an icon of a CD with windows labelled on it, along side the various OS partitions he had. He says that he didn’t go as far as the end of the install, however he had the full options of language and keyboard layout. This was probably a wise choice on his part, he might not have been confident, however this opens the doors to those who enjoy dabbling with the backdoor arts.
