Apple Apple Computer's announcement of new Macs based on processors from Intel raises an interesting question: Since both the Mac and Windows operating systems now run on Intel-based hardware, shouldn't it be easy to run both on the same computer? That simple question deserves a simple answer. But there isn't one - at least not right now. Reaching the nirvana of running the two most popular desktop operating systems on one machine is a lot harder than you might expect.

At best, looking at stats from, say, w3schools, Linux and Mac are even. But I have my doubts as to how popular Linux truly is on the desktop. Other websites give much lower numbers.
