Red Hat Imagine a world where you could run both Linux and Apple operating systems on the same high-performance Mac laptop. That day may be coming sooner than Mac fans think. Red Hat has confirmed it is pursuing the development of a Linux distribution for the new Intel-based Macs. Red Hat is no stranger to Macintosh - Fedora and other Linux distributions support the PowerPC architecture once used by Apple - but there are challenges to bringing Linux to the MacBook Pro. It appears the opportunities outweigh the challenges, though, with potential repercussions for Microsoft if the market clamors for Red Hat Linux-enabled MacBook Pros.

Wine for MacTel PC's is in development.
Here's an early build, please read this forum for link to the build and notes about it.
http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?showtopic=1261

My comments about the article being stupid is because the artical make claims that Rad Hat linux will be a big money maker on the Mactel's like the fact that Apple switched platforms will encourage some type of movement to Linux. I'm all for running Wine on a Mac and all but to dual boot into Linux just to run Wine? Seems like a headache to me.
