With all the talk of Apple switching to Intel I think there's one thing that may have been overlooked. If PPC was a joint venture of Apple, IBM and Motorola, it stands to reason that each member had rights to develop a CPU based on the PPC architecture. Apple being the only member without CPU plant could not and had to rely on Motorola or IBM. The switch could very easily mean Apple using Intel to develop G6 and beyond. Like them or not Intel reigns in CPU fabrication and will remain so into the forseeable future.
