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.

"For one thing, I don't like the Apple 'experience'. Too much hand holding and oversimplification to the point of obfuscation of features.

Second is software. The switch to X86 will not suddenly allow the use of all that Windows software on the Mac, not to mention that they might end up loosing some of the developers who do code for PPC."

You make these sound like a bad thing. Besides, who the f**k needs MS crapware?

Tell me again, who uses the PPC besides Apple in desktop and notebook systems? Those coders have to go somewhere.
