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.

"I for one will not buy a Mac just because it runs on Intel; I am less likely to buy a Mac because it runs Intel as AMD processors currently are better designed and perform better for my money."

A processor is only as good as the OS that runs on it, and nothing comes close to the elegance and power of OS X.
