Mac OS X It's still early days, but this has the potential to put more fuel on the Apple rumour mill fire than anything else in recent times. A BA thesis by Dutch student Tristan Schaap details how, during his internship at Apple's Platform Technologies Group, he ported Darwin to a certain ARMv5 developer board. A few blog articles later, and the headline has already turned into 'Mac OS X ported to ARM'. So, what have I been running on my iPhone and iPad all these years?

Apple's become pretty cozy with Intel in the past few years, but I'm sure that you're right. Maybe Apple will always use Intel chips for it's higher-end computers, but I'm sure how they remember how uncomfortable it was to get chained to the comparatively-stagnant PPC platform.
