    Hi,

    I am going to switch to a a new iMac in Jan after years of using a PC. Was just wondering if the camera is available to XP during a windows boot? The chat program I occasionally use does not have a Mac version (Paltalk, although one is promised) so I will probably use an XP installation to run that and a couple of audio apps I use (both Sony apps).

    Thanks,
    Mark Morb

    The iSight works just fine for me on my iMac and MacBook in XP.

    Are you guys sure about this?

    I had the toughtest time getting the Alu iMac iSight to work in bootcamp. It seems a lot of other people have the same problems. The bootcamp 2.0 iSight drivers don't even work correctly.
