Alright, hows this.... Even if Apple doesnt do it for Intel procs, then at least they should start up with clones again... If that happened, I can see nice cheap G4's for less than the current Apple models.Originally posted by serpicolugnut
God, will people EVER stop whining about OS X for Intel. People - it aint going to happen. If Apple ever got to the point where it needed to shift to another processor other than the PowerPC, it might move to the Intel architecture. But you can bet your ass that Apple would engineer it so that it would only run on Apple hardware some how.
Apple would not survive as a software only company. Everybody bitchin that Apple should move to Intel should wake up and look at Be.
Be made a great OS for Intel. Pretty much gave it away, and it still couldn't gain share. Apple would be no different.
If you can't afford the Mac and have to go for the PC, I feel sorry for you. It's not the end of the world, as WinXP is pretty decent.
But as I write this from my TiBook 500 from my living room, connected to the net via Airport, browsing under OmniWeb 4.1, running Freehand, Lightwave, Dreamweaver and Photoshop (under Classic), I know I made the right choice. My butt ugly P3/800 sits in the other room, longing for attention.
You've got it! I'm still not totally sure... I was just throwing ideas out there... I think some people are so obsessed with Macs (and others with PCs), and that is where this "battle" between platforms came from... People who don't have the time to help someone make a decidion, but have the time to flame them for there "decisions".Originally posted by AdmiralAK
Perhaps he has not bought it yet and is looking for some support to thrust him away from it lol
