OS X on X68

This entry on yesterday’s edition of Macintouch is very interesting in that it plainly states that the OS X system “Darwin” runs on Intel processors:

Apple Technote TN2063 (written for programmers) discusses Mac OS X kernel panics:

When the kernel crashes on Mac OS X, the system displays a panic message. At this point the system will have to be restarted. But before hitting the reset button, how can one find out what caused the crash?
– This technote addresses kernel panics: what they are and how to debug the code that caused the panic.
– The foundation of Mac OS X is a core operating system commonly known as Darwin. Although the Darwin kernel runs on both PowerPC and Intel x86 architectures, this technote discusses PowerPC exception handling only.
