TOTALLY MY OPINION KNOW THAT Here's one little theory I have about all of this. The potential for Apple to move to Intel is for speed boost correct? Even with Rosetta in tact the main move to Intel is supposedly supposed to be for speed. Plus the PPC architecture is getting expensive to develop. Now that we got that part out of the way let's start on the next part. Windows Vista. Vista is going for some extreme hardware requirements and is using stuff that Mac OS X, Linux, and Unix have been doing for like ever. With those major hardware requirements comes at an expensive cost. Very expensive, for those specs right now, it'd cost you over $5000 (estimated) for everything you'd need. 2GB RAM 256+ MB VRAM at least 4GHz dual core processor. SATA2 HDD, the works. Anyone see where this is going yet? Didn't think so. Apple is moving towards x86 hardware and is going to support it in their next version of their software. Mac's aren't that much in cost reference compared to the cost of PC's when Microsoft Vista OS comes out. Connect you people, damn you connect! Lol ok now I tie it all in. With the support of Intel on Apple, it's more like a trade off. While High-end users will be able to use Microsoft Vista, people will have a backbone to use while they wait till PC costs come down. They can use Leopard and wait till their hardware is upgraded to use Vista in some sort of way. This is if and only if Microsoft supports Mactels. I've always wondered if Apple and Microsoft haven't been working together secretly somewhere and this would prove, explain a lot of things if it is/were so true. EDIT: I've stated a few of my idea's/opinions, and I have no support for them whatsoever, they are just thoughts I've thought about since Apple announced of it.
