Not Surprised - Apple Blocks OSX on Intel Atom

In the current developer build of 10.6.2, Apple appears to have changed around a lot of CPU related information. One of the effects of this is Apple killing off Intel’s Atom chip.

Not at all surprised that Apple is again moving to exclude people from using OSX on non-Apple approved hardware.  Looks like the franken-macintosh netbook hackers have lost on this round.

I am an open-source zealot admittedly.  I just don't get why any informed user would buy into Apple although it did take me years to get off Windows.  Unless you go open with great options like Ubuntu or CentOS, you're just buying into the next Microsoft.
