WWDC 2005  

Someone's going to find a way to get Mac OS X onto PCs, sooner or later.
That will be the day that Apple dominates the earth.

In other Apple news, don't get QuickTime 7 Preview yet. Fucks up iTunes 'n shit.

Or the end of Apple. Depends on who's talking.

I had a discussion about rhaikh about this just a bit ago... I think this is good for Apple, although with the IBM fiasco, it seems like the only thing Apple can do.

But somehow, whether it's Apple themselves or someone who gets their hands on one of these devkits, I think Mac OS X will be available on PCs sooner or later. This could be the end of its high-priced really nice-looking cases and laptops and all, but hardware-wise, they've always got the iPod and other pretty stuff to fall back on.

Software-wise, though, I don't see how this is bad at all (except for Dan, who programs in PPC assembly).

Did I mention I work for Apple...kinda. =P I feel kinda bad, though, because I got a hacked version of Tiger (10.4) from my roommate from college. Needless to say, it doesn't have all the features/works properly as the retail version, but yeah, money I need.

Right, but you didn't get an Intel version of Tiger. That's what we're here to talk about.

apple used to dominate windows, but now with service pack 2 and xp, theres not really a point of macs other then.. no i guess there really is no point for them anymore.

hey man, i used to be all apple and crap, but now they piss me off because all they care about is looking pretty and selling their over priced dump computers to hipsters and mac elitist pricks

Do you not realize that this is the exact OPPOSITE of what I'm talking about right now?

Apple's going to be porting their operating system to PC architecture, so no one should give two flying shits anymore about how pretty Apple's stuff looks.
