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.

they're still gonna have a proprietary platform that their OS will run on. they said that they won't let it run on non 'mac' hardware. i don't really see this being all that big of a deal simply for that fact.

now if they decided to let OS X run on your run of the mill whitebox... well, then it might be worth all this fuss.
