Fashionably late, Apple has updated Boot Camp - its utility that allows Mac users to dual-boot Windows on their Apple hardware - with support for Windows 7.

There are two updates available, one for 64 bit versions of Windows 7 and one for 32 bit versions.   

Anyone planning to go through with the update should check Apple's support pages first as there's advice on upgrading - especially if you're upgrading from Vista.

The updates will only work on Intel-based Macs (so 2007 and on) and must be for genuine copies of the Microsoft software.
