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.

You still have to have Mac hardware to run MacOS even with an Intel chip (google for the whole story).

This really doesn't change anything unless the price of the package drops.

Linux will be just as strong a force tomorrow as it was today. Microsoft is safe in that you can't just run MacOS on any old Dell PC.
