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.

OSXn will cost more than Linux and as such will only be competing with M$, not Linux. Additionally, it is not open source or free, as in beer or otherwise and will not stop the adoption of Linux, especially in developing countries and outside of North America.

OSX is a nice OS but a one button mouse just wont cut it ;)
