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.

@linux will be way better in 2006 crowd

in 2006, will i be able to install a free linux distro and play mp3's, movies, etc without configuring my package manager to look at the shady repository and download codecs, software, etc that might be illegal?

this is my biggest beef with linux right now. I know the multimedia issues, and inability to include browser plugins, etc is not "linux's fault". But the problem still exists. Like a friend of mine said: "linux is free if your time is worth nothing"
