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.

RE Apple Shift

I guess this is the biggest mistake Apple is making. Previously Apple fanboys had a separate architecture to brag about. What will they do now - " Hey look, I have a Pentium 4 system that is white in color with an apple on it" . Not only is apple vulnerable in x86 because Microsoft is there but also linux is getting stronger day by day.
