OS X Leopard likely to have Windows support

Gearlog reports that the upcoming edition of Mac OS X (10.5 or “Leopard”) will support virtualization and is likely to also support Windows.

This is significant because it means that Apple has now committed to Windows-based performance testing, and it will influence industry-standard testing methodologies going forward, possibly including Mac OS X testing. We speculate that Apple will now develop Windows drivers for Intel Macs like the iMac, Mac mini and MacBook Pro with Intel Core Duo processors. You will probably still need to buy your own copy of Windows XP (or Vista), but this is exciting stuff.

So in the near future, the best Windows machines would be Macs (like how the MacBookPro is the fastest XP machine)! These are exciting times for Apple fans!
