Will Leopard be Intel Only?

I wonder… now that Apple has announced the Intel-based MacBook and iMac and plan to have the rest of their machines switched over by the end of 2006; will the next version of Mac OS X (Leopard) be an Intel only release?

It certainly would be one way of pushing people to upgrade their hardware. Though, it would piss-off quite a few people.

Or, will Apple release a simultaneous PPC version and Intel version?

    It’ll be for PPC as well. I’m pretty sure they said it would be this way for at least the next 5 years (dual builds that is). It would be silly not to either.. that’s a lot of revenue lost from people who own ppc machines and would gladly upgrade.

    I hope you’re right. Do you know if they were planning on selling two seperate versions or if it’ll be “Universal”?
