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.

Note that it took Sony to reach ~80 million PS2 since it's launch. the XBOX is about half of PS2 user base while GC running third in terms of user base. At the same time, X86 rocketed to +195 million units per year(2004)(laptop leading the unit sales growth).
