Call it the calm after the storm: Now that OS X Yosemite, iOS 8.1, new iPads, and Retina iMacs have hit the streets, Apple is likely to get a little quieter leading up to the holiday season — but not before touting huge sales for the iPhone 6 during Monday's quarterly earnings announcement. Cupertino had a bit to say about Spotlight privacy yesterday as well, and our Tuesday Morning Report also looks at a couple of new software offerings for OS X as well.
Windows 7 remains one of the most popular operating systems for Apple's rival Microsoft, but apparently the folks in Cupertino want nothing to do with it. According to new support documents (via MacRumors), Apple's Boot Camp for the new Mac Pro no longer supports installations of the 2009 platform. If you want to run Windows on your sleek 2013 Mac Pro, in other words, you're going to install Windows 8.

We are, however, ready to sign off for the three-day weekend to celebrate some dead Presidents, so look for our usual weekend recap on Tuesday next week!

Should you be on the fence about installing OS X Mountain Lion over worry that your Boot Camp installation might be affected, we took the plunge into the great known for you -- and have lived to tell the tale.

Here are a few suggestions for taming the new king of your Mac jungle.
