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.

Look where Apple has been making its money the last few years. It's not on desktop PC's. Apple's future is in little mobile gizmos like the iPoc. IBM's chips won't let them do what they want to do. Jobs said as much. Corporations don't make these kind of drastic changes unless no other alternative is out there.
