They are all unofficial, but they are fun to read. I can't wait for my own copy of MAC-OS-X on Intel or to buy one of those cool boxes. I hope they use a processor with 64 bit extensions and hyper-threading support

I think MS should be a bit worried as they would now have to worry about MAC and Linux -- two fronts, but they own a part of Apple computer, so......
