There’s really nothing like the Steve Jobs’s reality distortion field to make you a believer. Go watch his keynote address from the Apple WWDC. It’s an hour long, but it will change your perception of Apple’s transition to Intel.
I still can’t say that I’m completely sold. I still think that Power architecture is a better architecture, even as it seems that IBM was not delivering the goods. And it is a lot easier to make a product work on stage than in the real world. (The fact that Microsoft has had so many on-stage screw-ups with Windows over the years should really give one pause, Murphy’s Law notwithstanding.) There are still significant risks, a fact which is driven home by Apple’s own 8-K filing. But Apple has done much more work to lay the foundation for the transition than I had really realized from reading the news reports.
As for my personal Mac transition, I still haven’t really decided on a course of action. In any case, though, it should be fun to watch.
