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.

Apple would have been better off going to a common hardware reference platform. If one wanted to run MS on a PPC then it would run. If one wanted to run MacOS on an x86 that was chrp it would have run too.
Can't imagine how Apple is going to compete in the x86 market. Just no room for an Apple.
