I dont see anything realy exciting about it. Apple switched so many times from CPU platform or suppliers in the past, it's not anything like the real Mac OS will finally be available on X86 platform anytime soon.
I see nothing would be more successful for Apple to port the OS to the installed park of cheap PCs, but some other company probably thinks different. :)

Apple is going to have to make their OS available on PC's if they're going to stay alive for the next decade ... perhaps a move to Intel is a step in that direction.

I think It'll kill whatever cache the Apple brand name had...Sure it'll prob. open up a whole new market of lower margin x86 users...it'll just be another me too product...
I would have thought at least that Apple would opt for 2x opterons....at least something to separate them from the crowd...

Apple has been "separated from the crowd" for years - that's why their business is failing.
