Apple to use Intel chips.

Apple is going to support x86 chips with Mac OS X. I kind of like that idea, but I get a real "sky is falling" slippery slope vibe from it.
  1. Users whine, "why doesn't my ISA NE2K compatible that I bought at a garage sale work?"
  2. Apple has to learn to put up with badly designed hardware.
  3. The OS starts to look bad because there's nothing you can do with bad hardware but suck on it.
  4. A few kitties down the road and Apple is making software that is held in about the same esteem as Windows.
Five years from now we can review this post in attempt to measure my psychic abilities. I'd tell you now what the results will be, but I don't want to spoil the surprise.
