Frustrated by recent news reports, Apple announced today that Rhapsody, the next generation Mac OS that will be based on NeXT technology will not run on the Intel processor: it is being developed for PowerPC only. The problem lies with porting the Mac-compatiblity layer to the Intel CPUs.
At least initially. Gil Amelio was recently quoted as saying that he would be a fool not to at least look into Intel portability. I guess we'll have to wait and see, but given the PowerPC's recent problems, don't be surprised to see Rhapsody running on a PC near you
