OK, so here's a quick roundup of the Intel + Mac info on the net today.

First off, there's a great MacTel FAQ over at The chaps there answer such pressing questions as 'What is Rosetta', 'Will Macintel systems support Altivec' and the old classic, 'Should I wait to buy an Intel-based Mac?' There's some good info in there if you're not quite yet up to speed with the whole project.

Meanwhile, over at the OSX86 Project, they're reporting that there's a new torrent out of OSX 10.4.3 for x86. Apple have said that they will not be updating the developer builds of OSX for Intel processors, and it seems like the developer community is doing it for itself. Of course, you can't download it unless you own all the original discs for OSX etc etc. Piracy is bad, kids.

Apple has its own page up, telling developers just how easy it is to start programming Mac programmes using the Universal Binaries. They're telling us that Aspyr games is having an easy time of moving its games development to the cross-platform system. Aspyr are responsible for the Mac conversions of most top PC games, includes The Sims 2 and Doom 3.

Will you be interested in Intel-powered Macs, or will OSX continue to be an irrelevant distraction to you? Let us know your thoughts in the News Forum.
