Therein is the key. While it is true that dual-booting is certainly plausible, I am not sure if Apple has officially sanctioned this, not that it really matters from a practical perspective. As for the question on Rosetta, also not sure if the new applications will be universal or PPC. The press release still referenced the old PPC models. Most likely, they will be universal, as the roll out of all their software is due to take most of 2006. Still, nice to see some apps finally going MacOS native: Mapsource, Motion Based, Google Earth, etc.
