How stable is Boot Camp Beta?

in macOS edited January 2014
How stable is the Boot Camp Beta? I know it's a "Beta", but is it just a beta mainly because Leopard isn't out yet?

    I use it for some minor gaming on my iMac and have had but one problem and that was after instillation of XP, MS lost the drivers for my BT keyboard and mouse. Other then that it's as stable as a regular OS.

    One thing to keep in mind is that Boot Camp doesn't actually run Windows, it's just a utility for installing Windows, so there's really no issue of stability for Boot camp itself. Windows itself runs just fine on an Intel Mac, just as if it was a PC, minus some of the niceties that you'd get if the machine was specifically made to run Windows. But stability is fine - AFAIK, there are no more crashes when running Windows on a Mac than a PC.

    Yeah, Boot Camp isn't running whatsoever except when you're doing your partition-changing business.
