I think it's pretty obvious that this is what Apple is doing. Keynote against Powerpoint and Safari against Internet Explorer. I would say Apple just wants to cut all ties with Microsoft. With all this happening, the next year or two there is going to definitely be some tables turning. First is the hardware. Despite what people say, the G4 is on it's way out. I think Apple will go with either the 970 or G5, assuming it's released. With all this new software they are releasing, I really don't think they would go with anything but PPC, when the software would have to be rewrote and released for any other platform. And maybe the purpose of all this new software is to act as a distraction from the hardware ... and then during the last 5 minutes of the July MacWorld Jobs will introduce the dual G5/970 2Ghz PowerMac. But in all reality, Apple is a company interested in making money and making the best possible products. They know where they stand and they know what they have to do to get ahead. They've probably been testing new processors for the past couple years and are just waiting it for it to be just right. OK, I'll end my rant now.
