Agreed, those who love Apple will still love Apple.  Personally I've
never owned a Mac, but I was planning on getting a mini some time. 
Now that they are moving to Intel there is no question in my mind that
I will be running a Mac in the future.  I'll have the best Desktop and
some of the best software availible today, and when I want to play
CounterStrike, I'll just boot into Windows (or there may be a
no-performance-impact emulator for Windows apps).  Or maybe I'll boot
into Linux, download an i386 RPM, and install it without freaking out
that it's a binary-only package and I can't recompile for PPC or cell.
