Comment: Obvious (Score 1) 789

by Hexydes (#15091351) Attached to: Cringely Predicts Apple to Ship OS X for Any PC
This is so obvious. I have been saying it since Apple announced they had an Intel version of the OS (which we all knew they did, they just hadn't admitted it). Where else does Apple have to go with their OS? The made a great OS. They made a great OS that will work on x86 systems. They made a boot-loader that will let people run the OS everyone else uses on their Intel system. They've made a great media-center type PC. What else do they have left to do?

The Intel stuff was all just a gauge to see how it would be recepted in the public. My guess is that you will see an AMD version of their system in 6-12 months, and a general version of the OS for any x86 hardware in 12-18 months.

Also, Cringley knows what he is talking about. He has for a long time, and still does. Hell, he was employee #12 at Apple, and helped move operations out of Steve Jobs parents' garage. That's gotta get him privy to something at Apple. :)

Dynamically binding, you realize the magic. Statically binding, you see only the hierarchy.
