Linux/WinXP on MacBook Pro

In Brief: Intel reported a 38 percent decline in first-quarter profit as PC sales slowed and it lost marketshare to its rival, Advanced Micro Devices; it also slashed its revenue forecast for 2006, though not as much as analyst expected.... The reduction, which assumes demand and Intel market share will improve in the second half of the year, wasn't as extreme as some analysts had expected, sending Intel shares up 1 percent in after-hours trading.... "Triple Boot," as the Web site calls it, adds the ability to run Linux on a MacBook Pro, relying on the newly-released Boot Camp, Apple's dual-boot utility to "chainload" Linux from an already-installed copy of Windows XP using the "LILO" bootloader.... Apple specialist Expercom is now selling MacBook Pros preloaded with Windows XP, featuring a 20GB Fat32 partition with WinXP and a licensed copy on CD.... Apple's flagship 17-inch MacBook Pro may make its debut at NAB, where the company is also expected to tout the recently released Intel-native Final Cut Studio 5.1.
