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.

businesses want both commercial and free (OSS) alternatives, currently linux offers all the free alternatives, and some commercial alternatives.... but the commercial alternatives will become more available as mac aps are ported to linux (which should not be hard to do.... and possably could even run under a wine like program. The difference between Wine for windows and Wine for OSX would be that..... 99% of osx aps would run bug free at native speeds.
