Mac OS X As you have surely noticed by now, Apple's CEO Steve Jobs held his keynote speech yesterday at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco. So far, the responses have been mixed; I have seen a lot of excitement, but also a lot of disappointment. Personally, I am not really sure where I stand.

32-bit / 64-bit

"Steve's claim that Leopard will be the first 64bit operating system capable of running 32bit and 64bit applications side-by-side is of course completely bonkers. Windows' 64bit versions have had this capability since Windows XP 64bit Edition (for the Itanium, 2001), which was later perfected in Windows XP Professional x64 Edition in 2005."

Not to mention that it's been possible in Mandriva Linux since, I believe, release 9.2.
