iMac Windows Edition

So the new iMac Core Duo is out there — there have been 3 or 4 reviews, most quoting a good turn of speed though nowhere near the 2 to 3 times faster that Jobs promised (I guess those G5 chips really are that good).

Early reviews are nice, but the community is waiting for the first person to successful install Widows on a new iMac. It would seem that it's not possible to do a standard install, which is a real shame as this could have been a great selling point. Oh well, here’s hoping that there will be a simple non-geeky solution soon. I'd like to be able to install XP for running a couple of important Windows only apps and a few games, I should imagine that many future iMac and MacBook (great name!) owners would like to do the same.
