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

Apple on x86 != supporting *all* x86 hardware.
by BBlalock on Sun 2nd Jan 2005 16:01 UTC

Apple could move to x86 and only officially support installations on a limited selection of the best hardware available.

If the user wants to run on the cheapest stuff they can find they shouldn't expect Apple to provide drivers for it.

Apple could still create thier own Macintosh hardware and provide full support for it.

Of course I'm waiting for the $500/$600 headless Mac, if it is everything that has been reported I'm going to have to start making room in my budget for it.
