Technology News Article | "NEW YORK (Reuters) - Apple Computer Inc. has been in talks that could lead to a decision soon to use Intel Corp. chips in its Macintosh computer line, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday." Hmmmm. I always thought the most expensive part of an Apple computer was the Apple logo, not the PowerPC processor. Anyway, if they are collecting votes: I'd rather run Linux on a PowerPC than OS X on Intel. Intel shares a trait with Microsoft, namely that while touting their dedication to technological progress they routinely stifle inovative ideas to protect their monopoly status. The Intel architecture is one Kludge on top of another. Once the world jetisons a dependance on Windows hardware architectures will be finally free to accelerate at full speed. There simply aren't that many situations that need assembly language programming any more. About time our technology realized it.
