Apple switches to Intel: Why?

So it's official: Apple is switching to Intel processors in their future Mac models.


The only worthwhile reason I could think of would be to go head-to-head against Microsoft and sell OS X for PC-compatible systems. But they're not going to do that. "We will not allow running Mac OS X on anything other than an Apple Mac", they say. But they won't try to stop you from running Windows on your Intel-based Mac. (Why would anyone want to do that anyway?)

I was thinking about buying a Mac, but now I'm not so sure. I might end up with an unsupported processor two years down the road.
