Original OSNews Interviews The news that Apple is going to switch to Intel processors shook up the computing world. Many users and developers were eager to publish their opinions on the switch. However, one group of people were totally neglected during all this: resellers. Today, we feature an interview with Wim Schermer, first Dutchman to own a Mac (in 1984), and co-founder of one of the biggest Apple retail stores in The Netherlands, MacSupport. We discuss the switch to Intel, and much more.

Thank you for making the interview available. As a customer of Wim I
know he is a nice guy. But, even though I am probably not the "average" customer, my plans are definitely different from what Wim describes, because the main reason for not buying a PC still exist, the Intel processor, with its unbelievable way of processing bits (aka small-endian).
So what I'll do is, switch the major part of my processing to Linux and just keep a system for iLife type applications. With G5 iMacs getting cheaper there must be a moment that I can buy such a beast and say Goodbye to Apple (and Wim).
