It's funny. I felt a bit ill with this news. But the
transition from 68K to PowerPC reminds me of

Mac didn't have an original "Mac" processor, but one
made in development with IBM, etc. I've gotten over
that now. I guess we just have to wait and see what
happens to know how we'll trully feel about it.
