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.

This will have as much impact on Linux as.....

Microsoft releasing Windows 95 closed source
Microsoft releasing Windows 98 closed source
Microsoft releasing Windows 2k closed source
Microsoft releasing Windows XP closed source

Sun Microsystems releasing Solaris 10 their brand of "open source"

FreeBSD dying (not really) :-)
OpenBSD having a remote exploit
The number of penguins per iceberg in Anartica

In other words, I don't think _anyone_ will notice _anything_ except the people who write trade articles and host alarmist websites that like to claim any number of the above events will destroy Linux.

Of course, the best way for us Linuxers to deal with the competition is to come to the realization ..... There is no competition. (think Matrix)
