Since the MacBooks are now Intel based, this opens up the possibility of running OS/2 on them.
Right now, Apple has released "BootCamp" which will allow you to dual boot OS X and WinXP....

This little trick that the Linux guys tried might work with OS/2:

Either we boot OS/2 with the NTLDR or possibly can quad-boot...NTLDR->LILO->OS/2

I'm posting this via OS/2 on my MacBook by running it in a Parallels virtual machine. Works pretty good so far. Here's sysbench results for it.

It's supposed to allow the guest OS to control USB devices, though I've not tried that out.

burner support is not in the current version of Parallels. They plan to add it in the 3.x version, which is scheduled for release later this year. I read about this in their forums, specifically this thread
