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.

There can be only one!!

Look Jobs is smart enough to realize that IT, programmers, and end users don't want to be locked into one system. They just want to sit down at a box and go.

The same thing is happening in language. I speak two languages and have a rudimentary understanding of two others, but I prefer to speak English (not because it is better, but because a large portion of the population understands it).

The UNIX variant known as *nix willbe the ultimate winner. Jobs and Apple have chosen their side. OS X is basically a pretty version of Free BSD.
