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.

hehe... I find this so ironic.... hard core linux users tend to push push push their linux os's... however.... guaranteed..... if it ever did go mainstream... most of us would jump ship to bsd or some other free os.... heh

I love linux, it is all I use at home on my 3 computers (and freebsd on one to lol)

I just think it's funny.... I know I would probably start complaining about linux and how it sucked and all that if everyone and their mom was using it... linux being only a nitch os is part of what makes it so secure and functional, some things are better left as a nitch... honestly, I think this is mac's fate to.. linux and mac will have it's nitch markets.. at least as it stands now, who knows what will happen down the road.
