It's a big change. And honestly, the rumors about apple doing it have always had me a bit.... anxious. I really really like apple software but I switched to windows xp and linux during after G3 original iMac era and only came back to apple once they started making x86 computers so that I could run all the software I needed one way or another. The idea of them switching and me not being able to have a windows partition or virtualization instead of emulation means that I'd have a hard time buying a Mac. I'd probably switch to a Linux distribution at that point for my daily use and boot into windows for the required software.Even if Apple released brand new machines this week that used non-Intel CPU's, it would still take close to a decade before they stop supporting their current Intel line. And who the hell knows where we'll be in a decade software and hardware wise? For all we know we'll all be using Google terminals by then and doing everything on the cloud.
I am amazed at the degree of alarm on these forums, this is nonsensical.
