That's a little over my head, but I fail to see why Bootcamp was excluded from the test. I have no problem with testing on a Hackintosh, but I believe running the tests under Bootcamp would have added weight to the findings and would not require a lot of extra effort.
Vin's explanations as to why he chose not to do so leave me a little mystified.
