Editorial "Despite its current misadventure with Linux, Sun isn't in the generic desktop computer business. The Java desktop is cool, but it's a solution driven by necessity, not excellence. In comparison, putting Mac OS X on the Sunray desktop would be an insanely great solution for Sun." read the rest

PPC is the way to go...

Apple has taken a good step by establishing a partnership with Big Blue (IBM)...the G5 CPU is impressive, and the right chip. Instead of APple going for a different CPU they should fully utilize the G5 first. You see the G5 is a 64bit CPU whereas OsX is a 32bit Os. Clearly Apple is behind in exploting the G5 advantage. A G5 machine is currently an over priced adn under-utilized CPU, at least until Apple makes Osx truly 64bit (it is merely 32bit now). I for one hope that Apple does that soon, but for now, the revenue is clearly on the iPods, and APple should concentrate on that, put the Macs on the backburner, get the iPods, and then either transition to fully 64bit or dump the desktop. No room for sentimentalism in bussiness, iPods are the tru shiny stars in Apple future right now.

Go Apple go!
