Apple "Today Apple announced the MacBook Pro. It has quite a few changes compared to the previous PowerBook. For one, it uses an Intel Core Duo (formally known as Yonah) chip. This is a dual core processor and no, unlike what Steve Jobs stated, this does not have two processors. This will help a lot with responsiveness. I've been dreaming of a dual core laptop for quite a while. However, the realization of my dream coupled with the changes seen makes me cry", writes Unsanity. UPDATE: Windows XP won't run on the new Intel Macs because of EFI. Vista is supposed to work though.

Or the correct answer, which is: the majority of OS X wasn't 64-bit clean anyway. 64-bit apps on a 32-bit kernel might work on PowerPC, but doesn't work on amd64. To run 32-bit apps and 64-bit apps concurrently, you need a 64-bit kernel.
