Apple for years was the last stronghold that stood between the x86 architecture and complete world domination. Today the company finally fell for the lure of x86 and now Intel can finally sleep.
It's sad for the company's former chief executive Craig Barrett that this happened only shortly after he retired, for he seemed to have a strong urge to win Apple over.
Placing an iBook on the table during a meeting with Intel executive would without any exception lead them to some comment on the inferior processor that those computers used.
Barrett himself crossed the line two years ago. At a media event at Intel's head quarters in Santa Clara, he looked at the owner of a Powerbook in a disapproving manner.
"We'll get you a real computer some day" he said. Today he got his way.
