One thing this makes me hope is that some of our more enterprising =20
developers would be able to take Paul's DCL dev tools to design a =20
proper NCU replacement (i.e. Escale on steroids) in time for Leopard =20
(OS X 10.5), since Classic and all dependent upon it are going the =20
way of the dodo (albeit with a nice bit of warning, at least!)...

I wish I could do more than offer my services as a beta tester, tho. :-(

As long as I'm making development wish-lists...anyone wanna make a =20
Newton Sync tool for OS X that takes advantage of Tiger SyncServices? =20=

Again, tho, I could only test at best.

Reserving judgment until we know then what only Steve and Intel CEO =20
Paul Otellini know,

PS: Interesting links from Ars Technica re: the Apple/Intel =20
announcement..Ars, as always, NOT hyperbole-laden and insightful...

times of chaos and war, to love yourself without reservations
and to love each other without restraint. Unless you're into
leather. And then, by all means, use restraints."
