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.

I think Apple might be able to limit/cripple attempts of a hacked OSX ISO reaching the interweb, simply because only a small subset of "supported drivers" will probably be made available to run on Apple produced machines. Who would bother installing it on a Dell/HP/No-name box if their video/sound card won't be detected? I could be wrong, but I doubt Windows drivers could be used by OSx86
