    MacIntel question

    So, with macs coming out on intel computers, windows games will be able to run on mac os, right? But windows games wont run on linux, and linux uses intel, so is the theory flawed or have I missed something?

    Theres no DirectX for the mac.

    edit...
    Its kinda the same as saying "all windows apps will work on osx."

    now, there is openGL, and winex can map DirectX calls to their openGL equivs, but winex doesnt run on Mac, so meh.....

    No windows apps will run under OS X without a windows emulator. Now maybe Virtual PC will get faster on an Intel and run those apps and games faster when emulated as on a PowerPC as it has less to translate ... or maybe you can directly install Windows XP on a Mac with Intel chips the same way as you can Install Linux on a PowerPC Mac.

    I take exception to this. Linus is a peanuts character.
