Keeping Apple’s secrets

A great story of secrecy and serendipity in how Apple maintained their Intel version of OS X :

“How long would it take you to get this running on a Sony Vaio?” JK replies, “Not long” and Bertrand says, “Two weeks? Three?” JK said more like two hours. Three hours, tops.

…By 7:30 that evening, the Vaio is running the Mac OS… The next morning, Steve Jobs is on a plane to Japan to meet with the President of Sony.

This was in 2001. It took 4 more years for Apple to make the shift. {via DF}
