I have recently bought a MacBook Pro and I would like to know if there are any definative plans from Apple to provide Boot Camp support for Windows 8.


I noticed in the FAQ for version 4.0 of Boot Camp that Windows 8 is not currently supported.   It would be nice to be able to use both the latest versions of Windows and OS.X on the MacBook Pro.    Will an upcoming release of Boot Camp, provide formal support for Windows 8?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Only Apple knows the answer to that questions. They aren't here.

    In the meantime, I am left with the question of do I bother to wait for a formal announcement from them or go ahead and consider that BootCamp is a technical dead end that stopped with Windows 7.   The silence on the subject from Apple, now that Windows 8 is out and available can only give me the impression that Apple is not too interested in formally supporting it to any significant degree going forward.

    You may surmise as you choose.
