    Has anyone heard or read anything regarding Apple's plan to support boot camp with the new MacBooks. I'm not sure how they will integrate Windows with the new OLED touch bar. I use my laptop for business and I need a Windows OS. I could use Parellels, but prefer boot camp for ease of use and the fact that I don't have to allocate my RAM.

    It will be very interesting to see... unfortunately that will have to be in "2-3 weeks"!

    I hope the new bootcamp drivers also do a good job of ignoring palm presses, that's my biggest fear.

    Apple software engineering chief Craig Federighi has seemingly told a customer it will display function keys — presumably traditional F1-F12? See here: http://www.macrumors.com/2016/10/28/using-touch-bar-with-boot-camp-windows/
