Anyone that has been stuck around me for any length of time knows I’m an Apple fanboy at heart. Before there was C3D, there was the Mac. Well, now I get to play back around with both. I’ve just finished installing C3D & Vault on my new MacBook, and I’m beyond pleased with the results. I’m also testing out a new blogging tool. Not as happy with that, but we’ll see where this goes.
Check out the image for my results.
Oh! And thanks to Travis Klasna of Jeo Consulting Group, Inc. for convincing me to take the leap. He did it first.
An update: Running under both OSes natively makes it all that much sweeter. I slipstreamed a XP SP1 Installation disc late last night and fired up Bootcamp. Bootcamp basically tells the Mac disc to let the XP setup take over a partition. With that in place, Apple includes some specific drivers, but essentially, I have a Apple-branded XP laptop now.
This native support let me FLY in C3D, as well as fire off Bioshock just to really test things. If you’ve never seen that, you REALLY need to at least check it out. I’ve not played a FPS game since Marathon & Doom, but this is something else. Anyway, it runs like a top, and now I have the complete best of both worlds.
Oh, and back in X, I can fire up Fusion, and launch that same instance of XP when I need something on the fly. Yeah, I’m in nerd heaven.
