*Shrug* Mergers are normally either for one of two things. Publicity because their popularity is dropping. (Note how windows is the dominant OS and AMD is quickly taking lead over the processor market even in prebuilts) Or a desperate attempt at keeping their company going by merging with a company that can pay their debt

Yes, Apple is going with Intel processors instead of their traditional use of IBM PowerPC processors. Even if they use Intel processors, the software and OS's should stay the same.

The Mac OS being developed for the coming Intel chipset (OSx86) has already been hacked to work on a standard PC.

Well, OSx86 isn't even officially released. The hacked copies that work on PCs are illegally pirated versions, so you'll hafta wait until it comes out officially before you can get the hack to run on your system. Or you can just break the law. Whichever.
