Promise not kept
Unless an update is delivered by the end of Thursday, Apple will miss a deadline for adding official Windows 7 support to Snow Leopard's Boot Camp, reports note. For some time Apple has hosted a page on its website, promising that the support would be coming "before the end of the year." Windows 7 has been commercially available since October 22nd, and still earlier in the form of public betas and release candidates.
An Apple support representative responsible for Boot Camp troubleshooting has claimed that his division has received no updates from management, and that as far as he knows the Boot Camp update is still in testing. It is currently possible to install Windows 7 on a Snow Leopard Mac, but the process is unsanctioned by Apple and requires complicated workarounds. Boot Camp is otherwise compatible only with Windows XP and Vista.
