Boot Camp

Software from Apple that enables an Intel-based Mac to host the Windows operating system. Boot Camp divides the hard disk into Windows and Mac partitions, installs the necessary drivers and creates a "dual boot" environment. Introduced in 2006, Boot Camp does not provide a virtual machine capability such as found in Parallels Desktop and VMware Fusion (see Mactel). Windows and Mac applications are not run simultaneously. At startup, the user must choose which OS to use and must reboot to switch to the other environment. See boot and dual boot.
