Mac OS x86

So Apple announced Mac OS X for x86

Hardly a surprise. Apple has been working on x86 support for many years, off and on.

If you're expecting to be running Mac OS X on your next Dell's… Keep on dreaming. I'm pretty sure you'll have to buy an Apple-branded PC in order to be able to run OS X.

What I'm wondering is… Who is going to keep on buying the current PPC-based Macs? Is Jobs really willing to forgo sales in order to insure that developers have plenty of time to convert their applications?

There isn't much information out yet, we should get more details in the next few hours.
