MS demos Vista, Office 2007... on a Mac

Apparently

Microsoft has apparently taken to demo'ing Windows Vista on... er... an Apple MacBook Pro. That at least is what a series of shots taken by Belgian photographer Pieter Baert at a presentation the software giant made at its Belgian HQ, near Brussels, last month.

The MS staffers were showing off Office 2007 too - again, running it on the MacBook Pro, Baert maintains. Here's one of his pics:

Of course, what we don't know is whether the demos were of live software or simply a collection of screen shots embedded into a presentation running on the Mac - Baert doesn't say one way or the other. This is important because while Windows XP boots on the MacBook Pro, the process for getting its successor onto the machine is far from straightforward. ®
