OMG! Microsoft created a secret Boot-Camp-Like thing!

From TechRepublic post " Five Super-Secret features in Windows 7 "

"...Apple opened the door to more users - especially IT pros - in recent years by building Boot Camp into its Macintosh computers to allow them to run Windows along side Mac OS X in a dual-boot configuration. Not to be outdone, Microsoft as a secret dual-boot loader in Windows 7 that allows it to emulate Mac hardware and configure Mac OS X as an alternative boot option using the standard off-the-shelf Mac boot discs.

In a fit of cleverness, Microsoft has decided to name it “Training Camp,” which I found out when I uncovered the Help file. However, I’m not sure what it is training for.
"

I really hope this isn't phoney baloney, because im going to try it out! I'll post my findings here. Any discussion about Training Camp on this thread is welcome .

Im sooo excited
(Btw I knew that you could already run Mac OS X on PearPC, but I didn't bother with that )

The whole thing you linked to is "phoney baloney" very distinct in the tone.
If you really want to run Mac OS X on a PC just search for "hackintosh".

It is all a joke and nothing more.
Read all the replies and many thought it was the truth. LOL
I also have one of those magic touch screens but it keep getting finger smudges all over trying to make it work.
