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.

Yep IBM sees their future, and it isn't with Apple. Percentage of market share is what it's about if you're trying to make money. What I think Apple's real idea is - to switch to a processor that can prevent music copying using DRM at the hardware level. Look at the Pentium-D. Then look at Apple with iTunes and the iPod. 99 cents a tune adds up fast. They know where they're headed too.
