I'm just sitting here thinking what a waste of time our journey with IBM has been. Don't get me wrong--the G5 is a great chip and I understand that it will still work fine for years but I just don't understand why Apple didn't just go with Intel back in 2003 when the G4 was dying a slow death. Did IBM over promise and under deliver? (I guess that is obvious) Did IBM ever really plan to push the 970 and the POWER line or where they using Apple in order to get their plant and process flushed out? Did IBM drop Apple for the game consoles? I can't wait to read the book about all this in a few years. Tiger is so stable and (now) feature rich. I think we should have gone thru the pain once--back in 2003 with Jaguar we should have had Intel processors. I know most of you will say that would have been too much to handle but 10.0 and 10.1 could have been PPC but they with Jaguar, when OS X really was "ready" Apple could have said--"Here you go. Look at this awesome OS. We got it right now. And look, it only runs on the latest and greatest processors from Intel. We have an entire new architecture and the OS to take full advantage. Enjoy."
