It's the future

More than half the reason I've been trying to learn about Windows and Intel computers is my excitement about the forthcoming version of the Mac OS which runs on the Intel. Apple's insistence notwithstanding, I'm convinced that OS X, on generic Intel hardware, is the future.

Extreme Tech magazine published this report on their experiments building, and running OS X on, a generic box.

It's going to be an interesting couple of years for the Apple platform. Most of the buzz might be happening on the iPod front, but for those in the know, the move to the Intel platform could easily represent Apple's biggest gamble yet: It's equivalent to betting the farm.

Judging by what we've seen while putting together this story, we think Apple's transition will go over really well. OS X already runs great, and we're still more than half a year away from Intel Macs.
