Dvorak's POV on Apple and AAPL has been obvious forever. Bummer he missed the boat.

He's still missing the boat. So did you. Most of it, anyway. I know, I know, you made up for your screw up sale (post taxes) elsewhere, sorta, kinda, part of it anyway, a bit...

The switch to Intel was always a possibility lurking in the background, ever since Jobs et al came back on board from NeXT. The switch to OS X on Darwin, which we all knew was being maintained on Intel in the background, meant this was always a possibility. In a conspiratorial vein, it fits the belief that Jobs has been slowly morphing the Mac into the NeXT box he always wanted.

Don -

His timing was off by a couple of years, but we're all aware that it did happen.

I was predicting that Apple would port from the beginnings of OSX. It just made too much sense. I believed in the Marklar project. (I still think abandoning the PPC doesn't make sense and it's obvious they will do a Marklar on it. Linux runs on it.)

However

The idea that Apple would switch to Windows is

ludicrous

adj 1: broadly or extravagantly humorous; resembling farce; "the wild farcical exuberance of a clown"; "ludicrous green hair" [syn: farcical, ridiculous] 2: completely devoid of wisdom or good sense; "the absurd excuse that the dog ate his homework"; "that's a cockeyed idea"; "ask a nonsensical question and get a nonsensical answer"; "a contribution so small as to be laughable";

I was trying to find a synonym that was more extreme but why bother.
