      Very, very interesting.

      As Apple Computer Inc. draws up its game plan for the CPUs that will
      power its future generations of Mac hardware, the company is holding
      an ace in the hole: a feature-complete version of Mac OS X running
      atop the x86 architecture.

      According to sources, the Cupertino, Calif., Mac maker has been
      working steadily on maintaining current, PC-compatible builds of its
      Unix-based OS. The project (code-named Marklar, a reference to the
      race of aliens on the "South Park" cartoons) has been ongoing inside
      Apple since the early days of its transition to the Unix-based Mac OS
      X in the late '90s.
