Apple could charge for Boot Camp

Apple could offer a version of Boot Camp software for Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) users for a price of around $ 29.99.

The company has always promised to release the software as part of the next version of its operating system (Mac OS X 10.5; Leopard), which is expected to be available next spring.

So far, Boot Camp, the software that allows users of Intel-based Mac computers to run Windows on a different partition, has been available as beta software for Mac OS X 10.4 users.

According to information published in an online medium, it could be the case that the final version of the software is available to Tiger users at a cost of $ 29.99; meaning that users would not have to upgrade to Mac OS X 10.5 to use Windows on their Macs.
