    Just a quick one, but can you adjust Boot Camp so you can simply hold down W to boot into windows?

    Not as of right now - but possibly in the future, even though I doubt it.

    It wouldn't be a bootcamp thing. it would be EFI.

    Holding down W would seem a very straightforward and Apple way of doing things, after all F or floppy, C for CD Rom and Z for Zip have been used before.

    From my experience of Dual Booting a PC at work its a nasty and torrid affair - just looks cheap and amaturish.

    well the 'option' key makes sense too... press for options... i think its because boot camp wasnt designed specifically for windows installation, maybe someone would want linux too...

    Hmm, trying to boot by pressing V means that a somewhat scary bloke in a mask starts waving a blade around?

    :eek:

    He would be waving an Origami around instead.
