    Hey guys, I came across this article, Here

    I love this part ""We purchased a number of Apple G5's because very specific hardware components of the G5 allow developers to emulate some of the technology behind future Xbox products and services," a Microsoft spokesperson said in a statement. "This is an interim development tool that will be replaced with a more powerful and comprehensive solution later.""

    It seems like they hate to admit it

    Well of course, the Mac BU of Microsoft uses Macs, so it sounds like they just added a few more. I don't think it is a big deal, but nice to see they helped Apple sell a few more computers.
