Apple "The buzzwords for the 2006 technology outlook fly thick and fast in nerd circles: high-definition DVD. A la carte TV shows from the Internet. Windows Vista. Most of these goodies will take time to reach the masses. One, however, has already arrived, six months ahead of schedule: Apple Computer's switch to Intel chips for its Macintosh computers."

Exactly. He writes for the New York Times. I am, however, curious as to why CNET didn't include the last few paragraphs of his article. The rest of it can be found here...

Indeed, the last few paras are interesting. This is the part that lost a few people I know. They really really didn't want to buy all the apps again, and pay for all the updates.

The things I personally miss about Classic are: Hypercard, Claris Organiser, More.

Nothing to match them, after all these years.

Who is paying for their apps all over again? Most of the Universal versions are free. Hypercard etc have NOTHING to do with Classic going away. The decision to can them was made before that and OS X versions could have been made if there was a market. There wasn't. Next you'll be bitching about Ogg support in iTunes.
