Aw-yeah… Spence just posted a killer little series of articles documenting the process of setting up a triple-boot experience on a MacBook Pro. I’ve been living with a MBP for the last 6 months and love it. The only thing I’d like is to have a partition with Windows Server (2k8 preferred, but 2k3 works fine too) for SharePoint for when I’m teaching, presenting or generally planning to live in a server environment for an extended period of time. Why? Because I’d like to work right off the bare metal, using all 4GB of RAM and not having to be attached to some USB/Firewire drive.

Spence’s series is EXACTLY what I need. Can’t wait to wrap up some billable work so I can carve out a day to walk through the process and get setup. Only thing I’ll need is a good reimaging solution for the Win2k8 partition.
