Walter Mossberg from the Wall Street Journal took a swing at capturing the essence of the Apple-announced move to Intel processors over the next couple of years. In this article he says what I’ve been saying.
It ain’t the end of the world.
Apple’s OS won’t run on just anyone’s hardware. (In fact someone in the office today indicated that the processors used might take advantage of some chip tricks to identify themselves as Apple-endorsed chips as opposed to off-the-shelf models.)
While the hardware is designed with a high level of cool factor, the OS is what makes the beast rock.
So, everyone, take a breath. In. Out. In. Out. It’ll be ok. 😉
