OS X on x86 Prototype Boxes

MacEdition updates with further confirmation of the rumored OS X on x86 project (Marklar), indicating that prototype boxes have been seeded with versions of Final Cut Pro as well as an OS X-only browser.



First serious confirmation of an OS X on x86 project came from eWeek in August, 2002. x86 OS X appears to be a contingency plan for Apple, based on these rumors.



The OS X-only browser would likely be based on Mozilla, with Chimera's creator having been hired by Apple in July.
