Apple standing on a cliff.

Apple has been keeping an x86 (read: Intel) version of OSX up to date for a while now. eWeek says
this has been going on since the early days of OSX and adds...
Build numbers keep pace with those of their pre-release PowerPC counterparts; for example, Apple is internally running a complete, x86-compatible version of Jaguar, a k a Mac OS X 10.2, which shipped last week.
Imagine what chaos would ensue if a copy of this was leaked to the public. Would Apple be able to prevent users from buying non Apple hardware? What would the driver compatability scene look like? Would product manufacturers develop drivers for x86 OSX? Imagine the chaos.
