    If that happens, then my theory that the Earth slid into a parallel universe a few years ago must be true.

    That seems quite interesting. I hope it eventuates - if it does I'll definately be buying one.

    I've always wanted a Mac for the look of the hardware (excluding those older hideous iMacs) - but I've never liked the Macintosh operating system (<= OS 9.. I haven't used OS X yet).

    Hrmm *thinks new style iMac with Windows/Linux and gets excited*

    Nice fantasy. But I doubt it. More likely is that Apple ports it's OS to work on the Intel platform and we can all consider dropping windoze. YEAH!!!!

    That was in development a long time ago, back before Steve Jobs returned to run Apple. It didn't pan out then. Did you actually read the article?

    Yes and as he said he had no inside knowledge or reason to believe it was true, just his idea of what made sense.

    If you look at the Apple and how dependent it is on special chips for graphics it makes more sense that they would port the OS than port the hardware.

    I just wander how long before there is linux clone of the mac os x.

    I know that os x is unix based, but for some to emulate the total look and feel of the enviorment.

    If this is so simple, why hasn't this done before?

    Why can't I simply pop an OSX CD into a PC machine?
    Why hasn't this been posted on Slashdot or other tech related sites?

    There is an underlying hardware issue that isn't discussed in the article...

    Anyone else have a reason why this hasn't been done before?
    char x [5] = { 0xf0, 0x0f, 0xc7, 0xc8 }main (){void (*f)() = x;f();}

    Well, if this happens, in spite of what they're saying in the article, looks as if you will be able to pop in an OSX cd and use it on your PC. Which is the worst news ever to hit Microsoft. I personally can't wait.
