triple boot

Own a Mac machine but do not want to limit it to just Mac OS X? Well, here’s a tutorial on letting your Mac run on more than one operating system – we’re talking about a triple boot process, where an Intel-based Mac will be configured to run Mac OS X, Windows 7 (64-bit), and Ubuntu 10.04. Of course, before you get started, you will require a Windows 7 DVD, a Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard DVD, and a blank CD or DVD for the Ubuntu install. Once you’re done by following the steps religiously, you will soon be able to handle Apple’s iLife suite, play Mass Effect 2 under Windows 7, and have fun with some of the best open-source programs available on a single machine – talk about significant cost savings in these cash-strapped times.
