Improves bits of Bootcamp?

Who on earth would sully this thing with a Windows boot partition? :eek:


It's a computer. Computers aren't limited to one operating system.

The first thing I'd do with one is install Windows 8.1 on it.

Then I'd put the real Microsoft Office, 3DMark, and all of my Windows-only games on it.

Failed attempt at humor. There will be many more than 7 receiving this in 2013. And many more in Jan 2014.


Actually it was quite good. At least it has more upvotes than your comment :D

Failed detection of hyperbole resulted in your not finding this humorous.

Already an update? That's reassuring.


It just means they were improving software up until the day it shipped... and they continue to work. That's a good thing.

Microsoft is still trying to fix a bug in XP that's been around for 12 years.

In the words of the Onion, "in the business world, where people use computers for actual work and not just dicking around."

You would think that the KB on Apple's web site would at least have the correct image of a Late 2013 Mac Pro. Oh wait, maybe THEY don't have one yet either! :rolleyes:

I'm pretty sure the poster was being funny... People take things way too seriously sometimes in here... ;-)


The problem here is that if you come here for intelligent information or discussion, you are now largely wasting your time. I guess the forum moderators want their forum to be a place for bad comedians to show their wares rather than Mac users to intelligence.


I intelligence just fine, but you kind of prove his point.
