Vista Will Not Support EFI

Microsoft announced at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco that Windows Vista will not support booting with Intel's Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI). What does this mean, you ask? It means that you will not be able to boot Vista on those Mactels as previously thought. There will be support for EFI in Longhorn Server though. I can just see people now. "I just bought a MacBook Pro. Now it's time to install Longhorn Server. Yay!!" Don't give up hope completely though. Someone could figure out how to get XP to boot. If you want something besides OS X, then why not try linux?
