Intel Mac is true

Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced Monday at Apple WWDC 2005 that Apple will gradually shift its Mac line to Intel-based chips over the next two years.

Jobs revealed that Apple has been developing all versions of OS X since its inception to run on Intel and PowerPC chips.
Mac OS X has been leading a secret double life the past five years, he said.

Apple has used processors from IBM and Motorola (now Freescale Semiconductor). However, the company has changed architectures before, shifting in the 1990s from 68000 family to the PowerPC architecture (jointly developed by IBM and Motorola.)
