As somebody who is far from being an Apple enthusiast (!) it fascinates me that they are handing Microsoft, on a plate, this opportunity to promote Windows as being able to do lots of things that Mac OS cannot. There must be hundreds of popular apps that can't be (or won't be) re-compiled for 64 bits (for example, like BBC BASIC, they may include assembly language modules) so they'll stop working on Mac OS but will keep working on Windows. I hope Microsoft milk it to the max. :lol:
