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.

"The advantage I see for Apple to make a success, is they can get games ported much more easily now. This is the must have to survive. Games are the most overlooked aspect of home PC markets. "

since when did apple get directx? most games require that.

changing processors only means apple will have to recompile programs that are already written for mac to work with mac intel.

its not going to speed up writing games for mac. unless you count the compile time which is likely to be faster on the x86 hardware ;)
