And Larry Flynt is Interested in Licensing the Works of Ansel Adams
Fortune reports that Michael Dell would be interested in licensing a future Intel-processor version of the Mac OS from Apple.
It won't happen.
You will see Intel-based Macs capable of running Windows. But you won't see beige boxes capable of running OS X.
Update: Permit me to qualify that last sentence as follows: Buy you won't see beige boxes capable of running Apple-licensed copies of Mac OS X. Kids who wish their parents had bought them Macs may develop hacks that enable OS X to run on beigeware, but it'll be flakey and prone to breaking every time Apple releases an OS update or other patch.
