(IMG:http://www.engadget.com/media/2006/01/xp_on_imac.jpg) Notable curmudgeon John Dvorak href="http://www.tuaw.com/2006/02/16/dvorak-off-his-meds-claims-apple-switching-to-windows/">raised hackles last
month when he suggested that an Intel-powered Apple would dump OS X and switch to Windows. Turns out he may have been
right -- sort of. Word is out now that Apple has joined BAPco, an industry group that does one thing and one thing
only: create benchmarks for testing the performance of Windows-based PCs. The move comes on top of rumors that Apple
will include VMWare-style virtualization capabilities in the
next version of OS X, which could enable the Mac OS to run Windows apps without requiring a third-party emulator or href="http://www.engadget.com/search/?q=narf">a reboot. While those rumors have yet to be confirmed, it does seem
possible that Apple is indeed working on a way for OS X users to run Windows apps, and wants to use BAPco's tools to
benchmark the Windows-on-OS X performance (though the tools are said not to work all that well in virtual
environments). Either that or they just want to confirm the rumors that the MacBookPro is the fastest Windows laptop
out there.
