Apple Another Apple-to-switch-Macs-to-ARM post. "Apple engineers have grown confident that the chip designs used for its mobile devices will one day be powerful enough to run its desktops and laptops, said three people with knowledge of the work, who asked to remain anonymous because the plans are confidential. Apple began using Intel chips for Macs in 2005." No idea when Apple will make the switch, but they will do it. I'm thinking 5-10 year timeframe.

Are we really to stick with Mac OS X for another ten years because Apple cannot reconcile their own competing platform that by nature abhors a keyboard?

Oh, I hope OS X sticks around and I think it'll have to. Why? iOS is too limiting, and Apple wants at least a small foothold in business. One of two things has to happen: Either OS X has to stick around, or Apple has to relinquish a little of its control over iOS. I'm betting it'll be the former, that way there's still a definitive line (as far as Apple is concerned) between the various products.
