Boing Boing reports that the Mac OS X for x86 rumor is resurfacing. Who knows if it’s true?
Imagine if Apple got Mac OS X running on x86 hardware and included a
Windows environment based on Connectix technology that let you
run Windows apps with Classic-like integration. Connectix is
already a Windows-bundling OEM. In their forums, Connectix reps have
expressed interest in running Windows apps in a separate
window, rather than in a single Window that contains the Windows desktop.
All the pieces are there, and Apple’s more than capable of assembling
them. Running on x86 hardware would allow for Windows compatibility
without the performance penalty that Virtual PC users are currently
experiencing. All you’d have to do is get a copy of Windows to go with
your x86 Mac if you wanted to run Windows apps. This could make the Switch a little easier for some folks.
Would something like this make it easier for you to Switch?
