[lug] Mac Hardware (way OT)

Actually, Apple did have a project several years ago where the MacOS
could run on almost any OS (NT, Unix, etc.). It was around the time of
Pink and Taligent. It was scuttled for many reasons, but it was very
cool technology.

I'm sure there is not technical reason.

Furthermore, it would be easier still to just put it on top of i386 BSD
. . .

.. . . but why would they want to cut their own legs off like that?  The
day Apple puts out MacOS for Intel (or any other commodity HW) is they
they stop being a viable company.
