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.

It is no wonder why PC-BSD is addressing this problem

You talk about compatibility in your post, yet your bring up a completely new operating system. An operating system diverges from FreeBSD's own package system, and created its own installer. Also it is not LSB compliant and is not GNU/Linux, which is the de-facto open-source UNIX-like operating system.

So PC-BSD's attempt at addressing the problem, according to you, is also contributing to the problem.

Average Joes do not use GNU/Linux or Mac OSX.
