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 is the text in question:

"Considering that Apple was a co-inventor of ARM from the days of Next computer, and that iOS is basically a stripped down version of OSX, it is very likely that Apple has had this in the works for a very long time."

There is nothing fanboyish about it. It doesn't praise Apple, say nasty stuff about non-Apple companies/products/people. Making a statement about Apple that doesn't say they must die doesn't make someone a fanboy.

The text includes one slight inaccuracy, which probably wasn't made with evil intent. This inaccurate bit doesn't even add or subtract anything from the core statement and a logical assumption. iOS is indeed a light version of OS X and Apple probably runs more on ARM than we know.

People here have said some pretty nasty things about Apple and Steve Jobs, made inaccurate statements, much worse than this one. Well, they can do that and if someone doesn't like it he can reply to it.

I find it strange that that didn't tick you off, but this slight inaccurate neutral post somehow is seen as an example of anonymous Apple fanboys being overly annoying.
