That's especially funny and true since the internals of OSX are BSD in nature
which can be made to run on just about anything. NetBSD as an
example. Although admittedly a less "showy" one than OSX.
I'm betting someone else will port it to the older machines. IIRC
there's already talk of a port in the works for Intel but that may just be the
fogginess in my brain.
