Windows 7 the new operating system by Microsoft is considered a huge success, which is used to cover the mistakes of Vista. Vista users are rushing to upgrade their systems in order to get free from all the troubles and headaches.

You’re a Mac user and you’ve been hearing about all the the new features Windows 7 offers, and just can’t wait to get your hands on it. Unfortunately, you discovered that the current version of BootCamp does not support Windows 7. However, Apple has finally after failing their first deadline, released an update to BootCamp that brings the necessary drivers to support Windows 7.

The new update is of version 3.1, which supports both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7. The file size of the 32-bit version is 380.73MB while that of the 64-bit is 274.58MB.

Furthermore, Apple has also managed to fix a couple of bugs through this update which addresses issues with the Apple track pad. Nonetheless, support for Apple’s Magic Mouse and Wireless keyboard is now available.

Apple has also made available a utility tool “Boot Camp Utility for Windows 7 Upgrade“, which allows users with Vista installed to be able to upgrade to Windows 7 safely by unmounting the read-only Macintosh volume from Vista.

Now Mac users can get the best of both worlds, Windows 7 and Snow Leopard.
