Brad Oliver on Intel Switch
11:02 AM | Franklin Pride | Comment on this story

Aspyr's Brad Oliver has posted a lengthy analysis on what changes he believes the switch to Intel chips will cause. The analysis covers porting, possible scenarios for the mac platform, and what the x86 will or won't give.

The move to x86-based Macs has several implications for the Mac, and it's too early to tell how it's all going to play out. Phil Schiller, an Apple VP, has publicly stated that Apple will not prevent users from running Windows on these new x86 Macs, but Apple will prevent OSX from being used on any old x86-based PC. This is a gamble, and I believe it greatly increases the odds for two extreme (and wildly different) scenarios to play out.
