Steve Jobs passed away today at the age of 56. As I sit here writing this post on a MacBook Pro with an iPhone in my pocket and an iPod Nano in my backpack, I can’t help but be overwhelmed by the news. The technologies and design concepts this man helped create have literally changed the world for the better.
Thank you for everything you contributed to society, Steve. You will be missed.
Update #2: Check out my new post regarding the installation of Windows 8 Consumer Preview which should install even easier than this since it is meant to upgrade existing Windows installations. I have also had total success installing Windows 8 Consumer Preview in Parallels.
Update: Post updated for alternate workaround if the setup.exe file will not run. (Thanks Chris Apland!)
A lot of people have been asking if it is possible to run Windows 8 on Mac hardware through Boot Camp. I can definitely report at this time that it does work. You will need the latest Boot Camp drivers from Apple and a USB mouse with a dedicated right click button.
