Wow, you are actually serious! Unbelievable! Not even in America would a supplier be able to sue a customer for not purchasing their products. Apple does not control the chip market, and AMD can still market their processors to others and to apple, whether they buy them or not.Sirtovin said:actually AMD could sue Apple if Apple decides not to go with any AMD products in the future... due to Intel who will have a monopoly now on the PC/APPLE computer market.
Oscar Castillo said:Watching the keynote again I noticed there's no mention of any specific Intel CPU.
A P4 was in his demo box, and in development systems, and will certainly make it on some systems, but I wonder if the PowerMac will use Xeons or Pentium Ds first.
I'm just wondering what "great PPC products are yet to come" as he said.
1) Probably not. While the dev kits are pretty standard Mini-ATX boards in a G5 case, the final product won't be. Just take a look at the XBox 360... it runs on a Dual G5 system for the dev kit, but hardly the final hardware.Sirtovin said:1. Will Intel use their own new main boards?
2. Will Intel use a 64 bit chip? (They should since OS-X Tiger is 64/32 bit Operating System)
3. Will AMD sue Intel for not being able to have a fair share in the Computer Market? Intel and AMD are the 2 top Windows seller PC makers... (If AMD, won't be able to produce their own version for Apple than I do see a lawsuit of some kind in play.)
Remember that Linux comes from Unix - and Mac OS X is Unix-based.g/re/p said:Linux this and linux that, linux linux linux -blah blah blah blah blah!!!!!!
If i am ever stuck in room with a bunch of linux fanboys with no way of escaping thier diatribe, i will surely have to shoot myself in the head!!!
Linux sucks smurf out a dead smurfs smurf!

Regarding you sig --
if you don't like Linux and you wanna wipe the system, you must do as root
rm -rf *
on the root directory of the drive.
If you say so (and I got rid of my comment because I realized I'd posted without reading the entire thread). I'm sure you know more about this than I do .fryke said:Yes, but the intel Macs won't have Open Firmware. They're using an intel chipset, according to several sources (including Apple's developer notes on universal binaries).
So the versions of Mac OS for the Intel Macs will likely use that BIOS. Interesting. Hmm. Thanks for the info.fryke said:No, it means it makes not much sense... The goal for Apple should be to use intel's integrated platforms (cheap, available). There's a BIOS that basically is there for what Open Firmware is for on the traditional PPC Macs.
