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.

Dont believe a word

I could argue with almost every statement in that article, but the important issue, and the one the article omits, is the reason people choose linux.

Linux is not just good software, its a community and a free (virtual) world. Apple can choose whatever chip they like, they cannot offer everything linux offers.

And to say there are usually two main players is nonsense. Are there only two car manufacturers making good profits?? Of course not. No offence to the author, but that article is badly thought through and full of holes.
