Apple Dan Kusnetzky, Apple program vice president, spoke to PC Pro News at IDC and said that Apple has no plans to support booting into Vista on the new Intel Macs. However, a Microsoft spokesman said that Microsoft would have no problem granting a Windows licence to Apple, in exactly the same way it currently provides licences to Dell and HP: "Microsoft would support Apple the same way it supports every other PC manufacturer." But Dan Kusnetzky said it would be difficult to know who would support that machine if Windows was running on a Mac. However, "no doubt someone will work out how to run Windows on the Mac, even if Apple doesn't technically support that."

No it's not, that's the point of having a micro-kernel. If it's closely tied to the kernel than Apple has got a largely monolithic kernel ;) .

I think there's a lot of magic in quartz that's dependant on driver functionality which runs as "servlets" (or whatever they call them) for the kernel.

Actually, Mac OS X's kernel is in fact more mono than micro.
