You can get windows to run, but it's a bitch, and I'd guess not stable yet.
It has to do with the fact that the new macs support a different .. newwer standard of booting that windows doesn't support as yet.
There've been hacks to get windows running on the mac, but I'd really be scaired to try to get it running with a screenreader and expect any stability.
