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.

Yellowdog

I have been thinking how will this affect the Yellowdog business. They are an Apple "value added reseller". A lot of their business centers around PPC.

Did jobs say they will stop selling PPC hardware, after the transition?

Will yellowdog just become another rebranded redhat x86 product for HPC?

Will they go out of business eventually?
