apple switches to x86

"I felt a great disturbance in the interweb, as if millions of apple zealots suddenly
cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced." moo!

it was inevitable, they either had to open their market for clones, or adapt to the x86 chip

it's not going to be done till 2007, so there's some time, but if you didn't see it coming, you weren't paying attention
Mac OS based on Unix Shell
HP & Mac collaberation with ipod
few other small signs

neither of those had anything to do with a move to x86. Very Happy

osx was based on NeXTstep. not that apple had a choice in the matter when pink/taligent/etc were massive failures and nearly killed the company.

hp didnt collaborate in any way with apple on ipod. they only licensed the rights to make a clone.

might have more to do with the fact Motorola don't want to make the chips anymore, prefering to go ahead with other communication technologies

Motorola are completely separated from Freescale Semiconductor since last year, so they don't make any CPUs anymore afaik. Smile

Maybe we'll see that Leopard thing run on stock x86 machines too.

Next time hell freezes over Bill Gates will have announced Windows goes Open Source Wink.
