"It's just a CPU for crying out loud. There's a lot more to a computer than that. Get over it."

Get over it? This comeing from a guy hanging out on AMIGA.ORG. I love it. "Just a CPU?" Yup a big hot noisey one at that, but what's not these days right?

Perhaps he has a point. Anyone that has ever used BeOS on x86 knows it.

I dissapointed Apple didn't talk to AMD as well. I think it comes down to the "intel" name. It's all about name dropping.

First off Macs will still be Macs. Apple is a hardware company and a damn good one. You can bet they have some serious plans in the works to keep OS X on macs and only on macs. The universal binary is a good idea and software will be made for both PPC and Intel (cant call it x86 much now, you will see why later in this post) for years to come. The current developers are not stupid. They know millions of Mac users still have a PPC system and will for a long time. I have seen the P4 beta developer machines and did a few things with one. Its easy to make the new binaries. Its nothing to do it.

2nd Apple knows what its doing. They had this in the works since OSX was first compiled.

Next, IBM had no solid clue that this was taking place before it happened. The same time we all found out is when IBM found out.

"The announcement of Apple-Intel partnership has created a shock inside IBM, especially that it was not known in advance or predictable. A mail has been sent internally to all IBM divisions in order to explain and minimize the impact of Apple's decision to stop current partnership with Big Blue.
Apple's announcement seems to have created a quite big impact outside IBM semi-conductor division since IBM-Apple partnership was for Big Blue a good image for its marketing and CPU technology leadership.


Lastly, Intel is done with 32 bit X86 CPU. All future processors from intel are to be 64 bit and they did that over the past weekend. http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1827984,00.asp

So things are looking good. Do you think Apple mentiond a year ahead for the hell of it? Intel has huge plans and IBM cant kep up. I think we are about to see some serious stuff come out of them in the near future.

Thats the beauty T_Bone, there is no one universal chav speak.  They are all so different, yet all exactly the same. :-o
