"Apple has no desire or plan to sell or support Windows, but many customers have expressed their interest to run Windows on Apple's superior hardware now that we use Intel processors," Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing, said in a statement.

"We think Boot Camp makes the Mac even more appealing to Windows users considering making the switch."
