    At the company's shareholder meeting in April, however, Jobs asserted that Apple has "no plans" for a switch to Intel.
    Not much of an OS if no one gets to use it.

    Although having Macintosh on x86 would be cool (I never said I was totally againts Mac:) ), I doubt they'll do it. Microsoft has licenses with almost every major computer manufacturer out there preventing them from shipping computers without Windows. Since the very few users build their own computers and even they don't care much about Mac for the most part, very few people will be buying Mac OS X for x86. And even if someone gets a computer with no OS or wants Mac for some reason, most people's heads blow up as soon as you say "set the CD Drive as the boot device in your BIOS", so unless it is made so you can initiate the install process from inside Windows (which is doable), few people will want it. Of course if they continue to sell Mac with computers and find someone to build all of their new computers for them, there is no problem. I just don't see how it would really be that cost-effective for Apple to start making Mac for x86. Still, it would be cool, and I could stop using Basilisk II (Mac emulator) to play old Mac games that I still play for some reason.

    I don't really know much about OS\2. I've only used RedHat Linux, Windows, and Mac. Want to expand on that thought?

    As far as I can gather, OS/2 was nothing more than a WinNT clone produced by IBM. It suffered from stability problems, poor support and very limited software being ported to its operating system, but it was popular enough throughout the business sector that it became a BIOS option. Check out your settings and you will likely find a place where it asks if you're on a Non-OS/2 or OS/2 operating system.

    What are you talking about? Mac OS X is a free download? I know 7.5.5 and earlier are free. Am I missing something here?
