I can't remember exactly when and where, but on a Mac news site  
(MacNN, or HardMac, or even maybe CNet News.com), some weeks or month  
ago, I remember seeing a column in which some analyst (I think it was  
a university professor) was predicting that, with the activity of  
Apple being more and more biased towards the iPod and with Steve Jobs  
jumping on the Disney board, Apple was now planning to ultimately  
abandon the development of OS X: Apple would concentrate on making  
Macs and iPods, and all these machines would run Windows.

Reading this had seemed silly at the time, but now it seems less  
excentric, and a bit like it had felt when reading the first serious  
rumour of Apple switching to Intel processors on Paul Thurrott's blog  
(just after the beginning of the 5:50pm section of 26 April 2005:  
"This one's bizarre, but we heard at lunch today that Apple is  
unhappy with the PowerPC production at IBM and will be switching to  
Intel-compatible chips this very year. Yeah, seriously.").

More and more OT as it goes!
