Expo ushers in 1999
New Mac systems will vie with digital video releases as the headline event at Macworld Expo in San Francisco. The show will also deliver Web design and high-end connectivity tools.
Today, Apple and Intel released the shocking news that they now have merged into APTEL Inc., starting a new line of Computer Systems featuring the Intel Pentium II processor and Linux Slackware Operating System.
When MacWeek asked Apple's head man Tom Graham, why they now abandon Motorola he answers: well, intel processors with a linux operating system is clearly they way of the future, and with our merger with Intel, Microsoft won't stand a chance, so UP YOURS Bill Gates!
Sources inside Intel have confirmed for MacWeek that the new Intel Processors will have a built in bug that will make it in-compatible with Microsoft Windows, any attempt to run Windows will cause a Program Fault. Other sources say that this bug was first installed in the i386 processor but the next version will be the final one, that will make it crash at the "Starting Windows" level.
