Windows Apps in OS X: Is This What Leopard Can Do?

Some of our regular readers may recall a stupid and irresponsible rumor we started right here on this blog, that being the idea, based on a slip by an Apple PR type, that future Macs might shortly ship with Vista pre-installed as a dual-boot option for Leopard. The idea isn’t just to run Windows, but to run Windows apps in the Mac OS. Many of you scoffed at the idea, and we even thought it bogus ourselves.

Then a coworker showed me the Unity in VMware Fusion video above, and you can see just such things happening. We’re not saying Leopard’s going to ship with this type of scenario, but it certainly does stoke the fire and add food for thought, and other metaphors.
