MacOS Rumors heeft interessant nieuws over de beschikbaarheid van MacOS X voor het x86 platform. Drie grote OEMs zouden overwegen om MacOS X als optie bij hun PC's te leveren:
Reliable sources at three separate major Wintel computer makers have all reported in the past week hearing some surprising news around the water cooler.
Apparently, Apple has initiated talks with these corporations over their interest in offering Mac OS X as an option on their computers, and their willingness to support efforts to maintain a high-quality Intel-compatible version of OS X financially.
All three have promised more detailed reports (with objective evidence) post-haste; we can only hope that these will bear out the most interesting element of the initial hearsay -- the possibility that Apple may open-source significant new parts of OS X in order to facilitate third-party development of Intel versions of those components....including Carbon.
