I certainly second that.

By the way, Spiegel's "could we please restrict the discussion on the 
PPC -> Intel change to LaTeX related issues?" would seem to eliminate 
"TeX" related issue.

More generally, I think that such admonishments are perilously close to 
censorship by intimidation. For my part, I just trashed any message 
about MacIntel. I think that it has cost me only about 14.83 seconds of 
my still very busy life so that I can afford to let those who enjoyed 
the thread enjoy it.

Regards to all.
