Who cares what Apple's about to announce? It owes us a macOS x86 virtual appliance for non-Mac computers

Rosetta

Two thoughts:

* Rosetta will run most everything fine anyway. Apple have good experience of doing this, plus the transition this time is not such a large step - most holdout software that didn't work on the original rosetta were "Classic" apps (eg, for OS 9)

* Most app developers will release newer versions that work on both intel and arm, its not going to be as significant a porting effort as ppc -> amd64.
