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.

Missing the real issue

Now that OS-X is going x86, Microsoft is going to wipe the floor with Apple. There is no way in hell Microsoft is going to allow Apple to survive in it's hardware. As for Linux, no change. You have Linux improving in leaps and bounds every 6 months, Windows Longhorn and now Apple OS-X. Everything comming to a head in 2007, may the best and most open OS system win.

Then again, I will most likely be able to run Haiku and blow the crap out of everything else OS wise by 2007. Ah what a good and pivitol year it's shaping up to be. Long live open standards and community participation in computing.
