Mac OS X 10.5 Likely To Run Windows Apps

There is now speculation that the next version of OS X (version 10.5) will be able to run Windows apps natively within OS X. From Gearlog: "In a stunning move, BAPCo, the industry-standard Windows benchmarking consortium, announced that Apple Computer has joined up as a member. BAPCo is responsible for the SYSmark 2004SE and MobileMark benchmark suites we use at PC Magazine Labs for testing PCs. BAPCo also produces the webserver test WEBmark." The article goes on to say: "This is significant because it means that Apple has now committed to Windows-based performance testing, and it will influence industry-standard testing methodologies going forward, possibly including Mac OS X testing."
