Hmmmm. What was that picture a while back showing a blurry cpu at a 45* angle?!
[quote] NB: Motorola 7457 will still have a place in the Apple product line. It's going in the new iPod!
Well fark my old boots...I've gone all tingly...
I think the implications of this are huge. One of them is the likelyhood of OSX on Intel...Oh yes my friends. The move to Intel was espoused as a solution to performance problems...how wrong we were. The port to Intel will be an aggressive move aimed right at Microsnot's arse, Think about it, if you are totally confident that you have the best specced, best designed, FASTEST machines around then there is nothing to fear. Get the great unwashed playing with OSX on their digusting beige boxes and then sell 'em a REAL computer...Oh the irony!
I can't stop smiling....

Remember that about the same time moki started talking about GP-UL, he was also making unhelpful yet teasing comments about OS X on x86.
Folks, I think there's more here than meets the eye.
The three prongs of Moki's trident.
More and more intriguing is an Apple/Intel 'X' Marklar 'marketshare' Mac that tears M$ a new *sshole as they try to 'Palladium' an unsuspecting and gullible public. That would be a steel capped punt to M$'s nuts. If you've got 970-990s coming on tap... When do you do Marklar?
From a position of strength.
The 970 on the PPC side...and disatisfaction with M$'s Palladium will open up a window of opportunity for Apple that they won't be getting for another decade.
This is their chance to go for M$'s throat.
Bundle a free copy of 'Aqua Open Office' with every Mac sold in Apple stores?
A PPC 970 Mac that can emulate a 1 gig Pentium 3 under Virtual PC? (Cynic in me. Can you guess why M$ bought to kill VPC?
You aint getting to 8 Billion turnover unless you have something compelling to bring to your product line.
That aint another bumped G4 tower folks.
It has to be something more compelling. Now I can see why Freddy Anderson and Apple are being more bullish. (I can also see why Steve Jobs blurted his 10% figure!)
Loads more software.
Loads more Apple stores to shift kit.
Marklar to 'demo' 'X' to a PC owning 95%, many of whom are p*ssed at M$'s pending licensing gluttony.
Put 970 and no license fees in X-serve?
See some Fortune 500 companies doing an 'Enterprise' switch.
Watch the skies begin to fall...
I'm so happy, my head's caving in...
