No. "X" is the roman numeral for 10, which is the current series of Mac OS. They're all based off a similar code structure, much like how Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 are based on Windows NT.

In layman's terms, Mac OS 10.4, Mac OS 10.5 and Mac OS 10.6 is similar to that of Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. Anything after 10.x corresponds with the latest update from Apple. For example, my current operating system is currently Mac OS 10.4.11. "10" represents the current code base, "4" represents the variant and "11" represents the latest patch or update.

Stick with Intel. The previous PowerPC chips cannot run anything further than Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard).
Stop the genocide now.
