From Wired Blog Network:
Will Mac OS X one day run Windows apps without the need for dual booting or virtual machines? That’s the question/rumor currently making the rounds after Wine developer Steven Edwards discovered Leopard contains an undocumented loader for Portable Executables, a filetype used in Windows applications.
When Apple made the switch to Intel, it opened up a realm of possible Windows compatibility previously unavailable on the Mac platform. As the success of Boot Camp, Parallels, VMWare Fusion and Wine demonstrate, users would clearly love to have Windows and Mac apps running of the same machine.
And what’s better than virtualization and dual booting? Native support.
