There has been all this talk of rumors with Apple releasing Marklar (OSX for x86) or AMD Hammer-equipped Macs when Microsoft's Palladium hits the market because consumers will be dissatisfied with Microsoft. How likely is this really? It sounds all well and good to techies like us who are upset about Palladium, but the average consumer probably won't even know Palladium exists... Much less use it as a reason to buy a new computer or learn a new operating system. So Apple might win over some techies, Its not a very large share of the market that they would be capturing, and therefore isnt something that would cause Apple to do something as drastic as Marklar... Unless Apple had other reasons up their sleeve too.
