Brief on Macintel

June 4, 2005

I’ve got to go into work today, but all of this hoopla about Apple moving from IBM to Intel will make things interesting for those of us who see why people use Macs and not Windows and will make things interesting for those of us who use Macs in mission critical applications. I’ll add a post later about this when I can get my points together. But the main gist of everything, is that as soon as OSX runs on a cheap PC, it will suck…because you’ll lose the hardware lock-in that makes it wonderful to run OSX on an Apple machine.
