XP on a Mac

Thought I would post this if not for any other reason then to get witesharks opinion.

Someone has found a way to run XP on the new intel macs, here are some of the things that were required (i guess there was a competition):

A photo of the OS selection screen was posted (mirror). Upon booting the Mac, an Apple logo appears on a grey screen. Pressing the down arrow key at this time brings you to a Windows logo on the same grey background. Hitting enter lets you proceed to boot the selected Operating System.

I believe most people are trying to go the other way, and would rather run osx on a pc. Running XP on a mac just means you paid way too much for an xp machine that you can't fix.(unless they changed how they put the new intel macs together)
