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.

This place is getting as bad as Slashdot with the rabid Apple fanboy animosity (actually it's everywhere): anything questioning or not praising Apple is responded to with vitriol retort -- this coming from a die-hard Mac user from '95-'08.

Hey Apple fanboys, you won! Be happy. Apple is the most valuable company in the world, everyone has (wants) an iPhone, and the iPad has been selling like crazy! No need to be on the defensive about your platform any longer.

I really like this site (a site devoted to OSes) and am glad it exists. Thom does a good job with it too.
