It's not gonna happen. Apple is phasing out that processor. I think Kutaragi was saying OSX could run theoretically, because the processor is similar to the one Apple uses today. Also, his english isn't wasn't all that great when he did that presentation, and improper use of grammar often leads to misunderstanding. I also think about half of what he said at E3, lets say, was BS. Sony and MS both greatly inflate their numbers.
Steve Jobs says Apple is a hardware company first. I know they make software, I use it every day.
In the latest installment of TWiT (mind you, this is not the only place I get my news, just fresh in my head from last night) they talk about how its possible that the OSX86 leak might be a publicity stunt, that would lead Apple to the point where they would say "Everyone is stealing our OS, we might as well release it to the public and make some money off this." This is still a ways off. Probably after the switch is made. I, personally, would like to buy an Intel Mac Mini, and dual boot Windows on it to throw aside my PC. I use PC for Movie/Game copying and all that other stuff that's harder on the Mac, as well as Half-Life 2 and CS:S. Could do all that on the Mini except the games.
If I could build my own Mac/PC, I could use pieces of my current hardware setup to build a gaming/video editing machine. Work and play on 2 different OS's means I can't just switch monitors and play CS for 6 hours when I'm supposed to be working. I would then be saving a few hundred bucks as well, and I could still try to write it off.
When the PS3 is released, though, Apple may not even be using that processor. The next OSX revision will not likely be compatible with that processor.
I also don't think it wise for a console to have an OS. Why do we need it? It just makes it more succeptible to viral attacks. If every PS3 had OSX, more viruses would be made.
I really don't aim to flame here, but you say "business is business". Apple makes software for their own hardware. Providing OSX for PS3 is just like Microsoft providing XBox exclusives for PS2 and GameCube. It didn't happen, save for Halo and Fable on PC. Also note Halo for PC and Mac demanded way more system resources than it really needed. Halo looked like crap for me on the same system that made UT2K4 look better than Halo on the XBox, if you follow me. The Revolution and the 360 both use cell processors. Why not suggest they get OSX?
I would love to have OSX on, like, everything in my house, even the fridge and bathtub, but it isn't realistic. If we're gonna get OSX on PS3, it'll be a hacked version, just as OSX86 is now. I don't doubt the resourcefulness of hackers in the coming PS3 scene, so who knows what we'll see. I'm sure if we get an OS, it'll be some sort of Linux first. Maybe something like Knoppix is a good idea, have it run completely off the CD.
PS: I'd really like to know where I can get a processor with SSE3, ram, mobo, hard drive, case, video card, power supply etc for only $200. I can't find the processor alone for under $230 Canadian. Please link me, as I am very eager to try my hand at OSX86.
