Hi there. Here's something that might help us thinking 'bout the Intel. From the http://www.debian.org/News/2005/20050606.en.html: If Linux can run with no problems on eleven different platforms, why should everyone be worried if OsX goes to Intel? When Linux runs on Intel it still is Linux, the same when it's on PPC. It simply adapts to the processor, nothing more. I don't think that having an Intel engine in my Powerbook will mean much difference, apart that it will probably be faster (and cooler).
