Some people are saying that Apple's switch to Intel is admitting defeat, but that really isn't the case. Apple was never competing with Intel, IBM and Motorola were. So really, it is IBM that has lost, not Apple. Apple's competitor is M$ and this move must really have Bill Gates' panties up in a bunch. This will make Apple's portable line in particular even more competitive with machines running Windows, and the only direction Apple's marketshare is going to go now is up. I'm not saying I'm entirely happy with the switch, but it is no doubt the best move for Apple if they want to continue to increase market share.
