Apple on x86 info starting to trickle in

Apparently the early dev kits for x86 Apple machinery are standard beige-box compatible hardware. They can run windows. If the mac developer machines can run windows, then a windows machine with correct components (no ATI/Nvidia drivers yet, for example) would be able to run this release of OS X.

Interesting times, these.

(and for a chortle, read this article where the writer compares an intel-mac running PPC binaries via Rosetta (an emulation layer that doesn’t support SSE/Altivec) to a top of the line dual 2.5Ghz PPC Power Mac. Could there be any more useless comparison?)
