Umm, why don't people see the "marklar" thing as a joke... as it should be.
Do you know where X came from? (X as in 'OS X') - Hint: NeXT/OpenStep
Do you know what CPU that code base was written for? Hint: Not PPC
Do you know why it took so long for X to debut? Hint: New CPU Needed to be supported aka PPC
If you knew the roots of X you wouldn't think 'Marklar' was such a joke. In fact if Apple didn't take time to keep X working on x86 I'd be really shocked since as of 18 months ago X was running on x86.
AltiVec is far from required... iBooks and (older) iMacs are all the proof you need on that.
