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.

I don't see many people spending roughly 30% more for a mac than a comparably equipped Dell. I sure as heck am not. I'd rather wait for a hack to bypass whatever it is that doesn't let OS X work on Dell's or HP's.

I think this move to Intel will turn out to be a HUGE blunder for Apple, espcially if they think they are still going to be a hardware company with a 30% markup.
