    I've got it running under bootcamp with no problems. If you install the 64 bit version, you'll want to make sure you install the Boot Camp Update for Vista 64-bit, available from Apple's website. This update contains some patches that make the touchpad work a bit better, and also the sound will work after installing this update. I'm running on a unibody macbook, not sure if the update applies to previous models.

    It's very good in Boot Camp, other than the fact that my MacBook gets twice as hot as it does running OS X. Seems to be a problem with the fans, and I've had trouble getting the third-party solutions to work very well. I'm hoping for updated Boot Camp drivers from Apple.
