    I have a qustion for you all. Is Apple going to introduce it s Xserve with AMD processors because they are better (and even so for the "just in case" situation if it ever arises with intel)

    And are they ever going to change the names of their applications for example iLife to MacLife or something like that...

    Changing iTunes to MacTunes would not make sense for windows iTunes users.

    By the way Microsoft has universal drivers for its hardware to run on Macintosh computers.

    and no apple is not changing the name of it's software packages. they dropped the i in their hardware line to freshen things up. they still have the iMac though.
    expect a intel xserve pretty soon.

    Apple is widely expected to use Intel's "Woodcrest", or Core 2 Duo Extreme, Processors, in their Xserves.

    And, being that Apple was so quick to jump on the 'Core Duo' bandwagon with its iMac and MacBook Pro model lines, it's likely that Apple will use 'Woodcrest' pretty soon in its XServes or Mac Pro product lines...

    Not they are staying with intel for now

    As for the i thing, it was Apple wanting "Mac" in the name of there computers, as thats the Computer line name

    i'm sure apple is soon going to be changing the "iMac" to the new "MacMac" to keep up the continuity.
