I was digging through some of the really old posts on MR and found this post by JonesBonk, about Apple's purchase of Transitive Technologies. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=11596#post11596 Apple never did announce the purchase... until only recently. What's amazing is that anyone could have predicted Apple's transition to Intel from nearly 4 years ago. And amazing it has taken Apple nearly 4 years of *hard* work to transition to x86 processors and they still have about another 18 months left to complete. I've found this so interesting that the prediction is nearly spot on about Apple trying to ween PC users off MS Windows. Apple and Steve Jobs are clearly positioning themselves to seriously compete to gain marketshare.
