    In the keynote Mr. Jobbs releases information stating that all versions of mac os 10 has been created for both power pc and intell processors, He even has a computer running an intel proccessor at the keynote and uses it the whole time! He explains himself very well, and I can see now why they are moving to intel proccessors. So everybody, go to apple.com and watch the keynote.

    yeah regular pcs should be able to run osx but some things might not be the same with all the hardware so there may be driver complications

    just stick with the mac, it seams like they are going to do a wonderful job with it. I am staying mac even if I can get mac osX to work on my pcs.

    Well, from what I know, Mac OS X will not be able to run on anything but Apple's... DRM is going to be built directly into the chips and DRM will be linked to a specific OS

    yeah.. I am not really planning on installing os 10 on my pc's... although I bet it will be hacked to go on all x86 proccessors. Not that I am going to install it my x86 processors.

    So what is going to be upgraded first? The powermac? Powerbook? Mac Mini?
    I think it could be the powermac since they are already starting to give those out to developers, but the powerbook needs a change in proccessors and the pentium 4m is doing well in pc laptops.

    Specs:
    Dual G5 powermac
    they claim theyre supporting PPC for quite some time. Lets hope that isnt just 2 years. Illl quit complaining if theyll keep us G5 owners up to date for a good 5 years to come.

    My guess is that the Mac Mini, iBook, eMac, and PowerBook will be first since their long due for updates...It Should be around 1-2 years. Then the iMac, and PowerMacs will be last. So in reality, G5 owners will have around 3-4 years before upgrading, while G4 owners could only have 1-2/possibly 3 years left.

    Just my theory

    Specs:
    My setup: 17in SD iMac G5, 1GB RAM & 12in iBook, 1.5GB RAM (Both computers standard config.)
    i was dissapointed when i first heard of the switch, but like some other people have done i went to the apple website and watched the keynote. As much as i would like to to be able to install OSX on "any old" x86 peecee i WILL NOT. I believe that apple will continue to stricktly control the hardware that OSX will run on and i think that is a good thing. I can't wait to see what comes from this move to x86.

    I am not "up to date" with all the intel stuff so i have a couple questions. Is the a 64 bit processor by intel now?? ( i think the is not but i am not for certain)

    I see apple updating the mini, ibook, and eMac first. Then the Powerbook, iMac, and Powermac.

    I think they will do the lower cost ones first so that intel has time to develope a good 64 bit processor for the iMac and PowerMac.

    I was pretty surprised at how well Rosetta (i think i spelled it wrong lol) ran on the intel. Now if VPC could run that fast on a PowerPC (hey i can dream lol)

    I am very excited to see what comes out of leopard!!

    Well, thats my thoughts on the whole Keynote from WWDC

    I second that! Rosetta (u spelled it right) is a very exciting technology, and Leopard, which at first didn't seem like a very good cat name to use, but is growing on me, is something I am very excited about seeing more of!

    Apple is going to continue to peck at M$. The fact that they are coinciding the release of Leopard with Longhorn makes that very obvious.
