Mac OS X Anyone who hangs around on websites with information about installing Mac OS X on non-Apple labelled computers has probably already encountered this report, but it's newsworthy anyway. The upcoming release of Mac OS X 10.6.2 will remove support for the Intel Atom line of processors from Mac OS X.

Some of us still didn't get it yet. Apple never wanted OSX to be "OS for x86 hardware", instead of "OS for Apple Mac hardware". I mean, I can't even install Leo or SnowLeo on my fairly new AMD machines without a lot of hacking, which returns a massive butthurt in any way I can't use this with all the native Mac experience. What is the point then?

Some of us waited incredible anxiously for Apple to "release" Mac OS X for all the x86-universe. But hey, Apple is clear to crystal about it - people still buying Macs! Otherwise I see Be Inc. scenario with many crappy drivers and etc, etc, etc. This one not ended up very well.
