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.
