Apparently hell can in fact freeze over

After doublechecking my calendar to make sure that it was no longer April 1st, I share the following announcement:

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Apple Computer Inc. (Nasdaq:AAPL – news), the maker of the Macintosh computer and iPod music device, on Wednesday rolled out a first-ever software patch to run Microsoft’s dominant Windows operating system on its PCs, a move that could draw millions of new buyers.

By enabling the move to Windows, the world’s No. 1 operating system, Apple hopes to draw people who want Macs, considered by many as easier to use and more stylish, but prefer the Windows operating system.

Apple shares rose 5.7 percent in early trade on Nasdaq.

Apple said the “Boot Camp” software, available immediately as a download, enables Macs powered by Intel Corp. (Nasdaq:INTC – news) chips to run either Windows XP or Apple’s Mac OS operating system software.
