In this article John Dvorak says that Linux has the most to loose from this apple shift aside from the likes of IBM and Microsoft.
He mentions OSS licensing issues, and people being more prone to switch to a machine that can basically run OSx and Windows as being factors that could detract from Linux’s development. But I don’t exactly agree. I mean, you will still have to purchase an Apple machine, just like today to get to OSX. If that will be the case, then why isn’t it happening now?
Now if OSX was stand alone, like Windows is and ran on Intel for everyone….That would be another story. I could see a mass exodus from MS and Linux for that matter.
