Boot Camp beta gone
After warning users that its beta Boot Camp software for running Windows on an Intel-based Mac will expire at the end of October, Apple has pulled the Boot Camp beta download from its Web site. The company says that the license to use Boot Camp Beta 1.2 or earlier expires on September 30, 2007 and that the Boot Camp Assistant Beta will no longer open after expiration. Some versions of the beta software have already expired and the latest version will expire when Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard ships in October.
Apple says that users can continue using Boot Camp Beta by upgrading to Boot Camp Beta 1.4, but warns that that "the license to use Boot Camp Beta expires when Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard is available to the public. To continue using Boot Camp at that time, upgrade to Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard."
The BootCamp beta download is still available from Apple's Website.
