I would say that this is all "interesting," but it's not. John C. Dvorak of PC Magazine (and I've been a big fan of that for years) mentioned something like this happening several months ago. In fact I would be surprised if Apple's direction didn't follow his prediction rather closely. I could go on and on about the Mac vs. IBM-Compatible, Mac vs. PC, Mac vs. Windows debate, but I haven't had that arguement since college and don't plan on starting it up again. The bottom line is, in short, the PC/X86 architecture won the war with Mac and now Steve Jobs will be moving to maximize his market share in products where he is successful.
Alright, now that the flame-bait is done, it's more database work for me today.
