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.

it's a distinct possability that this could in fact help linux. For instance, ... it would be very easy to port Final Cut pro or any other osx app to linux..., this could open up the graphic design world to linux..... in addition to that, it will give the push to 3rd party hardware manufacturers to make feature heavy high quality drivers that we do not have now in the linux world (i understand the code is different... but would most likely would be very easy to port to linux)
