    Since you work for Apple, how's about getting the straight dirt and info on the rumor that Steve Jobs has developed an X86 version of OSX? :dunno:

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Besides darwin, have you personally heard of or seen this fabled x86 OSX?


    PS: info on the new ipod ipods perhaps as well? :x:

    from what I've heard, builds have been floating around apple campus since 10.0 but no cohesive build was ever assembled, I'm sure.

    any idea on how the new imac will look like?

    I heard rumors of getting rid of that half dome size and going g5?

    BTW do you get any deals on old g4 chassis? I'm looking for a quicksilver chssis. Point me in the right direction?

    Apple is the leader when it comes to being secretive about their new products. More so than any automotive manufacturer and since they actually design beautiful hardware, rather than utilitarian hardware such as PCs they strive to keep a lid on everything.

    an x86 version of OSX has been rumored to exist since Raphsody came out. Which was like a homoligation of Next and Unix.
