Editorial Today's confirmation that Apple is going x86 makes today a historic day in the industry. It may mean that Microsoft might see a few percent decline of their market share the next few years, but what about Linux? If Linux were to lose an equal amount of share it would alter its spread to the desktop, a spread that has been very positive so far.

Linux users would switch to MacOS?

I don't think that Linux users would switch to MacOS. I bought a Mac mini recently and I'm quite disappointed. Sure, for the normal user it's a very nice OS but not for the typical Linux geek. Too less configurable, not enough feature loaded (like KDE e.g.).

And I felt quite patronized by the OS. It's not really geek compatible.
