Mac OS X Two interesting articles on OS X today. This one summarizes some of the less-obvious new features of Apple's Tiger. The other one theorizes that Apple's shift to Intel is an incentive for Windows developers to port their software due to the lack of the endian problem.

Why peal off a version? why not work with Mainsoft, who actually HAVE the Windows code, and bring their software accross; sure, it isn't the complete code, but for 90% of cases, its a tweak and compile away - it doesn't work like wine, in that, it isn't a virtual machine, but its an API which simply requires a recompile.

Oh, and the MFC/widgets used in it can be themed so that it fits into the rest of the desktop.

Noone is going to want to recompile all of their windows apps with some random Mainsoft environment in order to gain a few Apple sells. The only tractable solution there is if you can just run the windows software as is without thinking about anything other than how ugly it is.
